CALLING ALL ARTISTS, MAKERS + ARTISANS!
For the past 71 years, Rockford Art Museum has hosted Greenwich Village Art Fair as their end of summer fundraiser. This year things have changed, as we’re all very aware, and the weekend event is being moved online. We are embracing this change, however and are hoping to freshen up the list of artists, makers and small businesses featured. The weekend’s virtual event (happening September 19 + 20, 2020) will showcase a few photos, bio/statement and a link to the exhibitors e-commerce site. The weekend will also incorporate fun events such as virtual studio visits, workshops, music performances and demonstrations. The only fee involved for the artists is the $30 application fee - all sales that weekend are of course yours in their entirety and there will not be a traditional “booth” fee. Historically throughout the weekend Greenwich Village Art Fair welcomes around 6,500 people to the grounds to shop and we have over 2,500 followers on the Greenwich page with over 5,500 on the museum’s page. We are confident the digital traffic to the site will be substantial and will definitely bring new people to your shop. We are also committed to advertising the event online and in traditional print publications. If you are interested in joining us this year, please fill out the zapplication.com form (search "Greenwich Village Art Fair") by August 16th. We look forward to working with you virtually this year!
P.S. Please check out this event on the Greenwich Village Art Fair page for an FAQ or message us with questions.

GREENWICH VILLAGE ART FAIR
AT HOME!
SEP 19–20, 2020
PRESENTING SPONSOR: MIDLAND STATES BANK

After 71 years of hosting Greenwich Village Art Fair outside in downtown Rockford, Illinois, we announce that this year's fair will look a little different. Throughout the years we've seen it all: downpours, swarms of bees, scorching sun and freezing Midwestern summer days, but it took a pandemic to keep us inside. Taking into consideration local and state-wide recommendations we have decided to move the 72nd Greenwich Village Art Fair online. The fair will still be a juried show featuring great local and regional artists and will remain a two-day event.

The fair website will go live, featuring the amazing artists juried into this year's fair, on Saturday, September 19th and will continue through the weekend. Stay tuned for other fun details leading up to this year's event!

Established in 1948, GVAF is the longest running art fair of its kind in the Midwest. All artwork on virtual display at Greenwich Village Art Fair is original and produced entirely by the hands of the exhibiting artist: no reproductions or mass-produced work. Admission proceeds will continue to support Rockford Art Museum, located at 711 North Main Street in downtown Rockford, Illinois.

Hello all! Thanks so much to all of you that have shown support for our decision to move GVAF online this year! We are so excited to share these amazing artists and makers with you. If you're considering applying for the fair or have friends that are, here's a little FAQ for you to help bring a little clarity around what's expected of you and what you can expect of us this year:

We are still accepting applications for this year's virtual Greenwich Village Art Fair! Anyone interested in being juried can apply at https://www.zapplication.org/event-info.php?ID=8118 before August 16th. Since this is a virtual event artists will need to have some sort of shopping page or website that we can direct fair goers to the weekend of Greenwich. Application/jurying fee is only $30 which will be the only cost incurred by participating artists – 100% of all sales will go to the artists and there won't be any fee for attenders to shop. Please help us spread the word and reach out to us through direct message with any questions!

07/08/2020

This year’s Greenwich Village Art Fair will not be happening as usual BUT we’re excited to announce that we’re still going to present to you the 72nd annual GVAF online! Throughout the weekend of September 19th and 20th we’ll be sharing beautiful original art and fine craft as well as featuring some marketplace vendors, sharing studio visits and workshops, presenting kids crafts and more! Save the date to join us from home—and if you’re an artist looking to be featured visit rockfordartmuseum.org or zapplication.org to apply.

Your parking questions answered!

Let’s talk parking! Obviously Greenwich is taking up the majority of our lot so where can you park? Well, there’s neighborhood parking and designated lots (look for the signs) all around the museum building. Or you can ride the free trolley (thanks RMTD!) which is running every half hour during fair hours and is following the City Market route (check out our page for the stops). And of course, if you live close enough you can always walk or bike here! See you in a couple days!

Day three of Greenwich Week and today Carrie Johnson is talking about a few changes to the fair layout. Creations by Kids has moved to our back patio and the main music stage is now in the back corner of our lot so you can watch the musicians and look out over the Rock River! We’re also excited to add a couple of new food options to the fair! Along with the always delicious Village Pub we’ve got Veebos wood fire pizza and the Bacon Me Crazy food truck will be selling delicious breakfast items from 10 AM to 2 PM. See you this weekend! (Sep 14 + 15)

Hello friends! As you might suspect, volunteers are really the backbone of any fundraising event and Greenwich Village Art Fair has always had a great group of people volunteering their time to help us! But we need more! We have lots of openings but are especially in need of Basset trained servers and bartenders. If you want to help, follow this link: volunteer.greenwichvillageartfair.com.
