When: Coming again in August 2013
Where: Downtown Delavan, WI (map)
Stop by and check out the best of the season sales; you won’t want to miss it! Music, street performers, chalk walk, 160th birthday party for Bradley’s, sales, arts, crafts, food and fun, will be had at Delavan’s festival.
There are many great shops to visit while in downtown Delavan including: Brick Street Market, Bibliomaniacs, Delavan Gold & Diamond Exchange, Remember When, Scene II, Bradley’s Department Store, Hair Techniques, Pac Ratz and many more. Don’t forget Lubick Gallery on South Third Street just down from the Hallmark Store.
It will be a fun, arts & crafts related festival & sales event. At the turn of the last century Delavan was an art colony from 1895- 1910. Students from the Chicago Art Institute came to Delavan to study. Downtown Delavan wants to have the feel of an art mecca again! Delavan wants to attract artists to our downtown. We’ve been slowly moving in that direction; the last four years we’ve had Public Art displays throughout the summer.
