The 2016 Arts Festival marks the 14th year that Arts in Bartlett, the local arts council in a thriving Illinois community 35 miles northwest of Chicago, has presented Bartlett's only juried fine arts and crafts show. Arts in Bartlett, a dynamic all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization, prides itself on presenting high-quality, yet affordable fine arts and fine crafts in this highly anticipated free annual event. 

The Arts Festival is in a beautiful shaded park just north of quaint downtown Bartlett. Walkways, benches, gazebo and a playground make this a popular destination for local residents. Our famous artist breakfast will be served both mornings in the air conditioned Log Cabin in Bartlett Park, which will also serve as an artist lounge throughout the two days. Food vendors will be in the park and several restaurants are two blocks away in downtown Bartlett. Music and dance groups offer entertainment on the Main Stage and in the World Tent. Children's art activities are offered both days in the gazebo. 

Artists can apply to the Arts Festival after registering below on Entrythingy. Scroll down to "Is this your first time using EntryThingy? Then enter your name, email address and create a password to signup and submit your entry."
