Grove arts and craft fair arrives in time for holidays – Chicago Tribune

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Grove Holiday Arts and Craft Faire, co-sponsored by The Grove Heritage Association and the Glenview Park District, with proceeds from this eight-day-long event supporting the Grove, a 143-acre nature and historic landmark site and outdoor history museum.

The show will be different from most other craft shows, says Grove Program Supervisor Kris Van Voorhis.

“Coming to The Grove Arts and Craft Faire is an experience, just being here, the grounds decorated so beautifully – at night it’s like walking through a holiday wonderland,” Van Voorhis said. “We have customers that come from out of town to visit friends or family, who center their visit around our show, and in 2014 we averaged 4,000 shoppers over the eight-day event.”

The preview night for the event runs from 5-9 p.m. on Nov. 4, and the fair continues November 5 to 8 and 12 to 15. Times are Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
