Fine Arts Festival Adds Local Eateries
Tenth annual event will feature 100 artists, five musical groups and food selections from five Deerfield restaurants.
Food from five local restaurants will be a new addition to the 10th annual Deerfield Fine Arts Festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on Park Avenue just north of Deerfield Road.
In addition to 100 artists and five musical groups, people can purchase food offered by Trax Tavern and Grill, Il Forno Pizza, Dimetri’s Greek Restaurant, Ristorante Abruzzo and Tom & Eddie’s. This latest addition is the creation of the Deerfield-Bannockburn-Riverwoods Chamber of Commerce.
“This may well be one of the best fine arts festivals we have ever held,” Mayor Harriet Rosenthal said. “Quality and variety will be found in every vendor and booth.”
The 100 exhibitors include Deerfield watercolorist Barbara Roseman and featured exhibitor and fiber artist Prince Duncan-Williams. He was judged the best in last year’s show. People come from as far away as California and New Hampshire to display their work.
Musical performances include Edgar Gabriel’s String Fusion from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Kraig Kenning from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Nicole Garza from 3 to 5 p.m. on the first day. On Sunday, Patchouli will perform from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with Empty Pockets finishing from 3 to 5 p.m.
