The Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff celebrates 51 years of artistic excellence at Lake Bluff Park in 2012, overlooking Lake Michigan. The festival draws crowds from Chicago, northern Indiana, Grand Rapids and other nearby cities. Heavy community support brings repeat customers to artists.  Great organization with the nation's top show management and volunteers.  Large buying crowds make this their annual "must attend" Midwest summer event.
