North Shore Festival of Art: Skokie, Illinois – July 26 – July 27, 2014
100 Artists, Booth Fee: $445, Jury Fee: $25
With the completion of the 2013 construction, the 2014 festival will return to the beloved layout of previous years. This festival takes place in a very busy outdoor shopping and dining area called Westfield Old Orchard in Skokie, Illinois. Filled with lush landscaping, ponds, fountains and pretty sitting areas, the open spaces are as pretty as the stores that line the walks. The center features high end stores such as Nordstrom’s, Bloomingdales, Tiffany, Michael Kors and more. More than 84,000 shoppers with taste and money frequent the mall and love shopping the festival too.
