Gold Coast Art Fair moving to Grant Park

March 10, 2010 (CHICAGO)

This year's event will be held in August at Butler Field in Grant Park.

Alderman Brendan Reilly said the fair had become too big for streets in the neighborhood.

Reilly announced the relocation Tuesday night at a community meeting. He said the crowds and vendors associated with the fair were creating conflicts with residents and merchants by blocking driveways and hindering deliveries.
