Old Town Art Fair

Are your walls covered with Art Fair purchases? Do you want to be part of one of the Top 10 Art Fairs in the country? The Art Fair Subcommittee oversees the activities for the all-volunteer Old Town Art Fair.  The Old Town Art Fair (OTAF) is one of the few, if not the only, Chicago festivals that is completely planned, staffed and managed by volunteers. Each year, a group of 30 neighbors gather to plan the Old Town Art Fair and we rely on the help of over 700 volunteers to staff the event.

We would love to welcome you to our volunteer team! We need help in the following areas:

We also host a volunteer thank you party on the Friday following the Art Fair. All volunteers are invited and it’s always a great time. Click here to see a video from a previous Thank You Party.

Here are a few photos from past Thank You Parties.

For more information, please contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@oldtownartfair.org. In your email, please indicate your preferred area of interest.
