3rd Annual Whitefish Bay Art Festival
July 10-11, 2021
Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin
100% Outdoors


Fine Art and Fine Craft Show

After a successful 1st year, Amdur Productions proudly returns to the streets of Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin for the 3rd Annual Whitefish Bay Art Fest! The Village of Whitefish Bay couldn’t be more excited for and supportive of this art festival. Whitefish Bay is an affluent village, just 8 miles north of Milwaukee. The festival will take place in the downtown area along a vibrant tree-lined street and nestled amongst popular cafés, boutiques, and salons.  



Whitefish Bay is very similar to the North Shore of Chicago with its large homes, including many lakefront estates. The medium home price is among the top 4% of all Wisconsin. Whitefish Bay has a population of nearly 15,000 with almost 40% of that population earning incomes over $150,000 annually. 


 

 

With the support of the Village and the high incomes of the residents, this show is a great event!

All tables must be skirted to the ground. Only one artist’s work or the work of two approved collaborating artists may be displayed per booth. Artists must keep their area clean and orderly. Double and corner spaces may be requested but are not guaranteed and are awarded at the sole discretion of the Festival Committee. Double spaces must be occupied by two 10’ x 10’ tents or one 10’ x 20’ tent.

An artist requesting a corner must either have the corner wall open or use the outside wall to display art.
