We may not be participating in this year’s Edina Art Fair in Minnesota, but as lovers of our artisan crafted rugs, we certainly appreciate and like to celebrate the beautiful artwork of others.
This year will mark the 44th anniversary for the Edina Art Fair, which takes place in the suburb southwest of Minneapolis. The fair celebrates artists from around the country, and offers a great opportunity to browse, shop, and admire artwork all while surrounded by beautiful artwork.
Around 90,000 people are expected to show up, and they should find themselves sufficiently entertained. Over 350 artists will set up shop to sell their jewelry, pottery, paintings, crafts, and other items.
This year, the fair will also feature a special green art section, which will feature artists who work with exclusively environmentally friendly materials (as distributors of natural fiber rugs and environmentally friendly home décor, we are a big fan of this new part of the festival).
Festival-goers can listen to performances from Charmin Michelle, Charlie Parr, Alison Scott, Lehto & Wright, and others. There will also be fashion shows, cooking demonstrations, a kids' art zone, and other familiar fair shenanigans.
Check it out:
Free. 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 7. Located at 50th and France.
