There is a Young Collectors' Corner where only children under twelve are admitted to purchase artwork of their choosing. Much of the art is the same as in exhibitors' booths but at a much reduced price. See our WAAC Winter Art Fair Off the Square Gallery for photos of the fair. 

Musical entertainment ranges from Johnny Chimes to Bluegrass, classical to the Madison Area Ukelele Initiative, with special performances by Madison Suzuki Strings students and advanced piano students of area piano teachers. 

The application process for both the Art Fair Off the Square and the Winter Art Fair Off the Square is closed. We do not accept late applicants. If you would like to be added to the mailing list to be notified when applications become available for next year’s shows email wiartcraft@gmail.com.​

And, that's not all……….

The Wisconsin Alliance of Artists and Craftspeople will be hosting another fundraiser for Badger Childhood Cancer Network during the Winter Art Fair Off the Square. The event gives patrons the opportunity to choose gift beads for kids and teens with cancer or blood disorders. These “WOW” beads - handmade by local artists - are part of the BCCN Hero Beads program. 

Hero Beads let patients commemorate their personal treatment journey in the form of a simple, visible medical record. They initially receive a cord with letter beads that spell out their first name, plus a Diagnosis bead. Every time a young person has a procedure or passes a particular milestone, a member of the medical team can give him or her a special bead to add to the cord(s) of beads. Over time, Hero Beads provide a symbol of each patient’s personal journey, a touchable testament to strength and endurance.

For a donation of $5 patrons will be able to choose a gift for the children from over a thousand beautiful, handmade glass beads.  The beads will be distributed among the patients, and the monetary proceeds go to the children's families in the form of gas cards and other sundry items they require. BCCN relies solely on the community for financial support.  We encourage everyone to attend and show their support for Wisconsin artists and the Badger Children's Cancer Network this November!
