51st Edina Art Fair
50th & France Avenue
50th & France Avenue
Since its start in 1966, the Edina Art Fair has since grown to feature over 300 artists from around the world and host 200,000 visitors. Notoriously the first art fair of the year, the event is rated as one of the top 50 art festivals in the nation and has received accolades from national outlets such as Art Fair Source Book and Sunshine Artist Magazine.
Booths upon booths of ceramics, jewelry, glass, photography, wood carvings, mixed media, 2D pieces, fine art, wearables and sculptures will delight art enthusiasts along France Avenue and 50th Street as well as in the parking lots of Lunds + Byerly’s and U.S. Bank.
Besides browsing and shopping, fair goers can enjoy a kid’s zone and live entertainment. Hours have been extended into the evening for live music on Friday (“The Finn Band”) and Saturday (”Hornacopia”).
Food and beverage options will be plenty. Area restaurants such as Arezzo, D’Amico & Sons, Pig & Fiddle, and Red Cow will provide house specialties in the food court area. Due to popular demand, an additional Edina Grill Craft Beer Garden has been added so the two locations will be in the Edina 5-0 Food Court and on Drew Avenue. Plus, Edina Liquor is hosting a wine garden at Halifax and 50th Street.
