Jacksonville Main Street will be hosting the 4th Annual Art Fair on the Square. This two-day event will take place in Downtown Jacksonville on Saturday, August 23, and Sunday, August 24, 2014. The proceeds from this event will be used to support Jacksonville Main Street’s goal of Downtown revitalization and preservation. Additionally, the proceeds will create funding for the 2015 Art Fair on the Square and strengthen art education in our community.
This family-friendly event will feature area artists displaying multiple media types from jewelry, glass and metal to acrylics and water colors. Live entertainment is scheduled throughout the weekend and will feature music and theater performances by Playhouse on the Square.
Kids’ activities are being enhanced this year. Art Fair on the Square will feature a kids’ art tent where children can purchase lower-priced art that they select themselves, a sidewalk chalk competition, t-shirt decorating, face painting and an activity tent hosted by the Imagine Foundation.
The 2014 Art Fair on the Square is partnering with A. Gaudio & Sons Distributing for a wine and micro-brew beer tasting tent on Saturday, August 23, from 1p.m. – 5p.m. The art fair will also highlight a raffle during the event.
