Activities

There are a host of activities to enjoy throughout the weekend at the Uptown Art Fair.

For the first time in its 57 year history, the Uptown Art Fair will be cancelled and adapted for changing times. With the current and evolving impacts of COVID-19, and by guidance of local government, the difficult decision was made by The Uptown Association to cancel the traditional event planned for August 7, 8, & 9, 2020 as it is in the best interest to safeguard the health and safety of our artists, vendors, guests, neighbors, and volunteers.

 We look forward to returning with the 57th Annual Uptown Art Fair in 2021 on August 6, 7, & 8 for but in the meantime, art will still go on.  In place of the traditional Uptown Art Fair, the UPTOWN ART FAIR HEALS – MINI EVENTS will take place and we are excited to showcase the art and artists of our community in a new way!
