In 1999, the Oak Park Arts District launched “What’s Blooming on Harrison” as a celebration of the arts within our community. Over the years, this popular cultural event has highlighted the business district through artist demonstrations, live music, dance performances and an art fair. Not only is it looked forward to by the District’s neighbors within Oak Park but by the surrounding suburbs and the city of Chicago as well. On Saturday, May 20th, 2017, the art fair is held outside, rain or shine, along multiple blocks of Harrison Street. We are actively seeking fine artists and craftspeople, as well as musicians, vintage resellers, food vendors, food trucks, for-profit exhibitors and not-for-profit exhibitors, to be a part of our “What’s Blooming on Harrison” 2017 event. All artists must be present on event day.
