Join an inspiring celebration of arts, community and environment 49th PARK POINT ART FAIR returns June 29-30, 2019 in Duluth.

DULUTH, Minn. – It’s an event that evolved from a neighborhood gathering 49 years ago into the region’s premiere outdoor visual arts showcase. And it’s coming to a sandbar near you.

The 49th annual Park Point Art Fair returns June 29-30 to the Park Point Recreation Area in Duluth. Admission and parking is free at the nonprofit mostly volunteer-led event, which supports local ecological and civic initiatives.

Featuring the juried fine art and craft of more than 115 premiere artists from the local area, upper Midwest and beyond, the Park Point Art Fair also offers live performances, music, food, children’s activities and more—all in a stunning natural setting. An estimated 10,000 visitors have attended the annual weekend festival in recent years.

Artists display and sell work in media such as clay, fiber, glass, painting, photography, jewelry, woodwork and sculpture. And while visual art is the showcase, there’s more to experience during the fair, where you can stroll a pine-lined path tucked between Lake Superior and the Superior Bay and listen to music from local musicians. You can also grab a bite of food from one of seven food trucks offering Greek to Vietnamese and even gluten free fair food!

The art fair is presented by the Park Point Community Club, a nonprofit volunteer organization “Each year, the art fair brings people together—as visitors, artists and volunteers—in a unique setting on the shores of Lake Superior. Artists and patrons of the arts praise the consistently high quality of this show, and appreciate that it’s a grass-roots effort for a good cause,” said Carla Tamburro, Park Point Art Fair coordinator. “Park Point is an inspiring setting. And as a community of volunteers giving back to sustain this environment, we welcome everyone to join us in celebrating this Duluth gem.”

This year the art fair is partnering with other like minded organizations. The fair is being sponsored by Park Point’s own Solglimt bed and breakfast, The Duluth Art Institute, KUMD, OMC Smokehouse, Hoops Brewing, Beaners, The Reader and Wilderness Wellness. Working together we are promoting the fair to support local artists.
