This annual celebration of art and community is held the last weekend of June on the sandy shores of Duluth’s unique Park Point neighborhood.

As a visitor
Whether you’re chatting with artists, listening to live music or making your own creation, there’s always plenty of festival to experience at the Park Point Art Fair, where you’ll find:

120 juried artists from the Midwest and beyond displaying and selling work in media such as clay, fiber, glass, painting, photography, jewelry, woodwork and sculpture.

Free admission and parking

An accessible, pine-lined path tucked between Lake Superior and the St. Louis Bay connects visual artists on display with other fair activities

A performance area featuring live music and entertainment

Food vendors selling everything from BBQ and gyros to kettle corn and ice cream

Art making opportunities for the young and the young at heART

Artist demonstrations in different media

A grassroots, volunteer-led event that uses proceeds to fund community projects

As an artist
Many artists and festival goers alike consider this one of the region’s—if not the state’s—premiere art fairs.

Exhibition spaces are situated beside a paved path, allowing artists to unload work right where they exhibit. During show hours, you get the support of volunteers who supply everything from water to “booth-sitting” to a little friendly humor. And you’re invited to join us for an artist and volunteer dinner, a tradition that’s fostered friendships over the course of decades.

Accessibility
The set-up at the art fair is extremely convenient allowing artists to park directly behind their tent.
Artists who would otherwise not be able to participate because of the demands of hauling and set up are accommodated by this arrangement.

Awards
This is a juried event with more than $1,300 in annual show awards.

Size
In determining participants, we keep the overall number manageable to help selected artists better stand out.

More about the event

Not only is the festival situated in a stunning natural setting, Simply by being here, you’re supporting community.

We invest in marketing and publicizing beyond what you’d expect from a small grassroots organization. And we partner supporters ranging from the city of Duluth Parks and Recreation to VisitDuluth, KUMD and other groups and businesses.

Artist comments
Whether it’s their first time at the event or they’ve been coming back for years, artists make a point of telling us they appreciate everything from the setting to the attendance to the special attention they receive from Park Point Community Club volunteers.

This community is super and really supports the show and my artwork wow!

Of the 38 tp 40 shows we do each year for the past 30 years Park Point is one of our favorites.

You must be doing something right as our sales have gone up every year for the last three years. This year with the poor economy it was a thrill to do so well.

Park Point is a delightful fun setting for a show.

Park Point is one of the most beautiful places in Minnesota, I always arrive early to explore the pine forest and beach.
