Art Fair Fun!

If you have been on the hunt to find the perfect piece of art to put in your home, this is the weekend for you!  It’s time for the annual Art Fair weekend featuring the Uptown, Loring Park and Powderhorn Park art fairs!  Instead of looking for generic artwork that you find everywhere else, this is the time to support independent artists.  You can talk with the artist and learn about the process and story behind the pieces.

In addition to the art, this is also a great time to take the Nice Ride bikes for a spin.  With the Loring Park and Uptown art fair so close together, the Nice Ride bikes are the perfect way to get around and see the city.  You can also easily travel between the three art fairs at no charge using the Metro Transit Art Hop bus line.

Hours:

Uptown Art Fair

Friday – noon to 8 p.m.

Saturday – 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Sunday – 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Take a peek at the pictures below to see a small sampling of the artists.  I hope to see you there!
