Information for Artists

Exhibiting artists often name the Uptown Art Fair as one of their most successful events of the year. The enthusiastic collectors, family-friendly atmosphere, and helpful neighborhood volunteers, and the 380,000 visitors, make it a favorite venue for artists.

The Uptown Art Fair takes place in Uptown Minneapolis on the first weekend of August. The event footprint is located at the intersection of Lake and Hennepin, the center of a lively, upbeat business district and is the busiest intersection in the State of Minnesota. Over $2.1 million of art is sold during the festival; approximately 350 artists will be invited to exhibit this year.

Artist Applications for the Uptown Art Fair are accepted: November 1 through March 15 each year
