About

At the very core of our company is the desire to bring the highest quality fine art festivals to multiple communities. We have been successful for the last 15 years and strive to improve and grow.

Our 15 member customer service crew, led by our Manager of Customer Service and Event Manager are on site during every festival. Debbie Netter, president and founder of D & W Events, Inc., is also present all hours of every festival.

We can coordinate artists, food, music, children’s art activities, preview parties, meals, and any other aspect of each project. Debbie has a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and worked over 20 years in construction management managing large and small office/retail projects in Chicago.
