Sugar Creek Arts Festival Takes Art to the Streets of Normal

The Sugar Creek Arts Festival returns this weekend, with some 130  thirty exhibitors from across the nation bringing their ceramics, jewelry, paintings, photographs, sculptures and other artworks to the streets of Uptown Normal. This juried show of fine arts and crafts is accompanied by musical performances, vendors and workshops for children ages 4-16 who'd like to learn a little art themselves.

You can see details here of what artists will be where, what musical acts are playing when, and the specifics on those painting, drawing, ceramics and felting workshops for children.

Look for artists and their wares to be displayed on North Street between Fell and the roundabout, Beaufort Street between the roundabout and Linden, and about 3/4 of the roundabout itself. Food vendors will be found along that same route, with several at the roundabout. Click here for a map that puts everything in its place.

The overall hours of the Sugar Creek Arts Festival are 10 to 5 on Saturday and 11 to 4 on Sunday. There are several parking options, including free parking in the College Avenue parking deck and parking around Uptown Station.

The Sugar Creek Arts Festival is organized by the McLean County Arts Center and the Town of Normal.
