Event Details

May’s annual What’s Blooming on Harrison highlights the Oak Park Arts District through artist demonstrations, music and dance performances and a  juried art fair featuring guest artists and crafts people.  The festival begins the evening of Friday, May 17 with special events planned within the galleries, shops and restaurants of Harrison Street.  On Saturday, May 18 the festivities pour out into the street with stages for dance and music, a Family Fun activity center, food vendors, artist booths and more.   Admission is free.  

Your family can be a part of the art by designing a Petite Parade Float! Petite Parade floats take their cue from the generations-old, New Orleans grade-school tradition of decorating shoeboxes to look like Mardi Gras floats. Think diorama but on top of the box, not inside.  Your float theme must be family friendly.  The base of the float should be roughly the size of a shoebox and you must have someone available to pull your float through the parade scheduled to start at 3:00pm outside Art Gecko, 21 Harrison Street.  Questions?  Please contact lisa@artgeckoltd.com or laurel@oakparkartsdistrict.com.

For most activities, the What's Blooming on Harrison hours are Friday, May 17 6:30 - 10:00pm and Saturday, May 18 11:00am - 8:00pm.
