Flute Festival

The first ever annual Chicago Flute Club Flute Fair was held in 1998. The Chicago Flute Club has always provided fun, exciting, educational, entertaining, and enlightening clusters of events, showcases, workshops/lectures, presentations, performances, recitals, masterclasses, contests, competitions, and exhibits at all of its flute fairs. The Flute Fair was an annual event until March 2007, when the first two-day Flute Festival took place in November of the same year. The expanded Flute Festival became a biennial event on Veteran's Day weekend.
