The 32nd Annual Prairie Arts Festival will be held on the grounds of Schaumburg’s Robert O. Atcher Municipal Center on May 25 and 26, 2019. This juried fine arts fair, which draws artists from all over the Midwest, highlights the work of over 120 artists exhibiting and selling their work including digital, drawing, fiber, furniture, glass, graphics, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media 2D, mixed media 3D, painting (including watercolor, acrylic, oil, pastel), paper, photography, pottery, printmaking, sculpture, and woodworking. Large crowds are expected again this year as the fest’s reputation as one of the areas finest has reached all parts of the Chicagoland area.
We are working with the Daily Herald again this year to create a newspaper program insert. This insert, which will serve as a guide for patrons, will include a listing of artists with their booth numbers and art medium, map of the grounds, schedule of live entertainment, food truck vendors, list of Purchase Award patrons, and advertising. The guide will appear in select editions of the Daily Herald on Friday, May 17, and will be distributed to everyone attending the Prairie Arts Festival as well. Please feel free to include any specials, coupons, upcoming events, or grand opening information about your company in your ad. Restaurants may want to consider mentioning that patrons may dine with them after the festival. This unique marketing opportunity is an excellent way of supporting your community while promoting your company and getting your advertising message out to our patrons!
The participation agreement provides additional information on available sizes and costs. The deadline for receiving advertising is April 16, 2019.
