As usual, an eclectic variety of singers, dancers, and instrumentalists begin at 10 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, ending at 5 p.m. on Sunday. A wine and beer tent and snack area is near the stage.

The 51 artists' works from all over the country include ceramics, paintings, jewelry, fiber, glass, photography, wood, sculpture and mixed media.

Bartlett and Hanover Park artists include photographer Matthew Maples, glass artist Caroline McKnight and painter Brittany Pignataro; painter Mark Sauck, jeweler Wanda Pitzele, and Jean and Carl Hahn, mixed media artists.

Awards and cash prizes will be given in a variety of categories Saturday, with the People's Choice awarded on Sunday after festival goers vote for their favorite artist.

Children's activities include a World Tent, sponsored by Elgin Children's Chorus, with drumming circles led by Rita Lopienski and henna art with Nilam Patel. The YAA (Young Art Appreciators) Tent, sponsored by Da Vinci Academy is a "kids only" tent with original art works priced at only $1 to $5 donated by artists in the Arts Festival.

The Children's Art Gazebo, sponsored by Bartlett Dental Associates, is led by Kathryn Benton, teaching artist from Color My World Children's Art Studio and includes face painter Sheryl Konetzny. The Heritage Days quilt hangings made from squares created last year by local children will be on display at the Gazebo.
