This will be our 43d Oak Park show and our 38th show in this area (which is, we believe, the best possible area for a show in Oak Park). This excellent show is held in what is the shopping area for Oak Park, a healthy, vibrant area. Oak Park is the nurturing grounds for entire schools of Visual and Performing Arts, Architecture & Literature and has many tourist attractions. Scoville Park is located in the heart of Oak Park . Exclusive shops and restaurants abound in this well-established, ever growing Downtown shopping district surrounded by exclusive residential  area. Customers travel long distances to see and shop the show. Those who patronize  this area are very interested in high quality art work. Stores are very cooperative. Extensive publicity plus advertising & many posters/flyers distributed directly to customers. Area is easily accessible via public transportation and includes Frank Lloyd Wright House. Has been highly recommended by area members. We've even done well here when it has rained. An outstanding show. Most every,  maybe all,  spaces located on grass, possibly a few on hard surface.
 
Please remember : Park District Rules - no stakes - weights only -  very important as they have an in-ground irrigation system.
