The fair is open rain or shine, with gates opening Saturday from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

Proceeds from the Old Town Art Fair benefit the Old Town Triangle Association, the Menomonee Club, local schools, arts and cultural programs, children’s programs, and historic and architectural preservation projects.
