The Artisans Building was constructed in 1898 and is complete with hardwood floors, restrooms, and an open floor plan. This flexible facility is an excellent location for wedding receptions, high school proms, or meetings. ADA accessible restrooms, four entrances, heating, and air conditioning are added conveniences.

This facility is the second oldest building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds, and was once the home of over 2,000 coops. It underwent major renovation in 1988 and is now one of the most rented buildings on the State Fairgrounds.
