19th Annual Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival

Join us for the 19th Annual Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival!

Celebrating the Arts in this award-winning festival, the Kaneland Arts Initiative is proud to produce its founding event, the Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival! The community is invited to this ADMISSION FREE event from 11am – 5pm on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at the campus of Kaneland High School.

Over 20 professional visual and performing artists will be presenting their work for the more than 3,000 guest who attend this interactive, inter-generational event. Visual artists will be actively working on art as well as selling their outstanding pieces. Performing artists will be presenting amazing programs in the beautiful Kaneland Auditorium. Showcased throughout this celebration will be over 500 pieces of student artwork that includes a joint student & professional art auction. There is even an area for the infants and toddlers in our Pre-K Art Experience, presented by the Fox Valley Career Center Small Worlds Daycare and Preschool.

While this event lasts for 6 hours, many of our guests come for an hour and stay for three.

We will continue to update this page as information comes in to us!
