Announcement regarding Winnebagoland Art Fair
The members of the Oshkosh Fine Arts Association have decided not to hold the Winnebagoland Art Fair in 2018.
We are doing a Plein Air event instead.
Our Art Fair has been held for the past 60 years, most recently at Oshkosh's South Park on the second Sunday in June.
Major grounds renovation of South Park, which may not be fully completed by next June, has prompted the Association to take a hard
look at alternative sites, as well as our mission to encourage, foster, support and promote the “fine arts” in the greater Oshkosh area.
Association members have decided to take a hiatus from the Art Fair in 2018 and evaluate how we can best accomplish
our mission going forward. Thank you to all the artists, sponsors, and the Oshkosh community for your past support.
Thank You to our 2017 Community Sponsors!

2017 Art Fair Exhibitors & Awards
2017 was our 60th "Jubilee" Anniversary!
We believe our annual art fair to be the oldest in the state.From our beginning in 1957, we have grown to be one of the best shows in Wisconsin. Our show is judged by an outside art professional on the day of the Fair. We offer a number of monetary awards, including Best of Show, 10 Awards of Excellence plus purchase awards which are open to all exhibitors. The $200 Bernard Petersen Award honors our founding father and is presented to one of our exhibiting club members who then donates a piece of art to a community organization.
This is an event for the whole familywith entertainment and a variety of food concessions. A Silent Auction for our student scholarship fund offers artwork donated by our exhibitors for bid by the public.
Winnebagoland Art Fair is held around the lagoon at beautiful South Park, 800 W South Park Avenue, Oshkosh, WI 54902
