About the Fair
The art fair was first launched in 1985. It has run yearly ever since, though it switched to a virtual version in 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year the fair is at its usual spot on Naperville’s Riverwalk, along Main Street and Jackson Avenue.
Naperville Art League
The Naperville Art League was started in 1961, and celebrated its 60th anniversary last year. The non-profit began as a group of art lovers meeting in the basement of a local bank, then the basement of the Old Nichols Library. They are now housed in their own space at 508 North Center Street in Naperville.
