Come celebrate the arts and share a magical day in the park at the 4th annual Mundelein Arts Festival Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 6-7.

The two-day juried festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days in Kracklauer Park, 100 N. Seymour Ave., Mundelein.

"There will be something for everyone, whether an art aficionado, area resident, or just looking to freshen up your walls," said Mundelein resident and artist Christa Lawrence, event founder and organizer.

"The mission of the festival is to support the arts, provide scholarship money to deserving art students and bring attention to the town of Mundelein as an excellent place to live and visit."

More than 45 vendors will be on hand with one-of-a-kind exhibits of artwork and crafts for sale, including paintings, photography, jewelry, stained glass, ceramics, pottery, sculpture, and more.

Attendees will also enjoy live music and entertainment, food from local eateries, and family activities.

Student artwork from Mundelein and Carmel Catholic high schools will also be exhibited. Scholarship awards will be presented to students from both high schools.

Featured local entertainers include Doug Blake, Prairie Sky, Apuli Brothers, Classic Violins, Louie Sharp and Mojo Daddies.

Admission is free. For more information, contact Mundelein Community Connection at (847) 970-9235 or visit www.mundeleinartsfestival.com.
