Powderhorn has blossomed into a hot Minneapolis neighborhood.
In 2016, real estate brokerage Redfin listed the South Minneapolis locale as one of the most popular places in the nation to move. And the neighborhood has a vibrant, historic Black pocket that feels connected to the community as a whole.
A long way in building such a ‘hood are events like the Powderhorn Art Fair, which returns for its 28th year Aug. 3-4 at Powderhorn Park in Minneapolis.
Over 200 artists and more than 20 vendors will be on hand, as well as local organizations, together making a fun experience for the thousands of people who attend.
For just about every artistic itch, the fair will offer a specialist. The kinds of art range from clay, digital, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, leather, mixed media, paper, painting, sculpture, and wood, among many more. And, for its second year, the fair will have a youth showcase, highlighting art from kids between the ages of 13 and 18.
Pairing with the art for the first time, the 2019 fair will offer a wine garden. Find what goes best with styles of art, be it wine, cider, and other alcoholic selections. There will be beverages, and food options from vendors, for everyone from the gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan.
Proceeds from the fair help to fund youth and community programming, fueling future community endeavors, and its inclusive artistic spirit.
The Powderhorn Art Fair is Saturday, Aug. 3 from 10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday, Aug. 4 from 10 am to 5 pm at Powderhorn Park located at 3400 15th Ave S in Minneapolis.
