Les Artisans Arts and Crafts Fair has a nearly 40 year history of bringing artists and fine crafters together with shoppers looking for unique, handmade items. Hosted by the Bourbonnais Grove Historical Society, the fair proceeds benefit the upkeep of the LeTouneau Home Museum and Adrian Richard Heritage Preserve. This iconic seasonal event was revived in 2016 by a new coordinator with a fresh vision for today’s stylized pop-up market. It is held every July 4th, and the first Saturday in December.
