Illinois’ Capitol will be an Art Lovers Paradise this weekend
The 60th Annual Springfield Old Capitol Art Fair takes over Springfield, Illinois this weekend, with music, art, food, and fun for the entire family!
According to the Springfield Old Capitol Art Fair's Facebook page the 60th annual event, which has been on a two-year hold due to the pandemic, is set to return this weekend May 21st and 22nd in the heart of Springfield. The event takes place Saturday the 21st from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday the 22nd from 10 am to 4 pm, they go on to say on their Facebook page...
"This art fair has 150+ juried artists in a range of mediums including acrylic, oil, ceramics, photography, jewelry, mixed media, metal, wood, drawing, fibers, glass, sculpture, watercolor, and printmaking...There will also be a variety of food vendors and live music!"
They also mention in a post on their Facebook page that since there is construction downtown near the Old Capitol, the event will be a little more spread out than in years past, but the fair can still be found around the Old State Capitol Plaza in Springfield. The 6oth Annual Springfield Old Capitol Art Fair also has a website if you are looking for more information about the fair and its history, just click here!
It is so great seeing more events finally returning after the multiple-year pandemic break, not only does it make you excited to see things getting back to normal but also art fairs and big shows like this are a great sign that summer really isn't too far around the corner!
