It is that time of the year again – time for the Edina Art Fair. This is Minnesota’s second largest art fair after the popular Uptown art fair in August. The Edina Art Fair has well over 300 artists, live music, demonstrations and food and is, of course, held in Edina at 50th and France.
The art fair features artists from the US and Canada and since 2009 they have a special “green artist” category featuring art made out of recycled and/or reused products and they must be at least 75% environmentally friendly materials.
You can bring the whole family as there is also a kid’s zone which includes face painting, hands on activities for children, puppet shows and family music performances.
The art show is open Friday June 1st to Sunday June 3rd. Hours are 10 – 5 on Friday and Saturday and 10 – 5 on Sunday. Admission is free and because parking at the fair is limited there is plenty of free parking available at the Southdale Mall with free shuttle service back and forth to the art fair on all days. The art fair is open rain or shine.
