TC Weekend: Art Extravaganza in Minneapolis and St. Paul — Uptown, Powderhorn, Loring Park and Smith Avenue


The Minneapolis art fairs are huge — but don’t forget about Art on the Avenue, long Smith Avenue, from the High Bridge south to Dodd Road, in St. Paul and West St. Paul.

Metro Transit offers free rides in Minneapolis. Download your free-ride pass, then take a bus or METRO lines from your home or a nearby Park & Ride lot. Show your pass for easy bus rides between all three Minneapolis fairs. Download your free-ride pass here!

The St. Paul Art Hop on Smith Avenue offers a decorate-a-van event, music, art in local businesses and yard sales from St. Paul’s West Side all the way to West St. Paul.
