Event Details

Powderhorn Art Fair, one of the finest juried regional art fairs in the country, celebrates 25 years, continuing its legacy of artistic expression and community engagement. Set in a pastoral, 66-acre city park, Powderhorn Art Fair features 184 local and national artists of varied disciplines, as well as a Community Showcase featuring exhibitors from the Powderhorn area. This year the Powderhorn Art Fair is a grant recipient from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council and the Minnesota Women’s Press readers selected the Powderhorn Art Fair as an Honoree in the “Favorite Art Festival” category for the fifth year in a row.

Powderhorn Art Fair is a collaboration between the Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. A portion of art fair profits pay for programs and equipment at Powderhorn Park that benefit all ages. This family friendly, multi-cultural event offers a variety of art, children’s activities, performances, food and acoustic music from around the world, including ArtiCulture, local musicians and special events. The 25th Anniversary Powderhorn Art Fair image is by polymer clay/mixed media artist Laura Burlis. Powderhorn Art Fair is a sustainable, eco-friendly event. Water is provided courtesy of the City of Minneapolis.

Patrons are encouraged to bring their own containers for free, self-service water. Waste stations for recycling and composting will be available throughout the park, and food vendors are required to comply with the Minneapolis Environmentally Acceptable Packaging rules. PPNA also abides by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and reasonable accommodation will be provided to allow individuals with disabilities to participate.

As part of Minneapolis Arts Weekend, two art fairs (Powderhorn and Uptown), have partnered with Metro Transit to help art lovers leave their cars at home and get to both fairs with less impact on the environment. Art lovers will be able to download a Metro Transit Art Pass for free rides on Aug. 6-7. The pass is valid for travel between fairs, allowing art fair visitors to avoid parking hassles and traffic delays.
