At over 50 years, the Uptown Art Fair could be considered “over the hill,” but this vibrant festival is far from being behind the times. Each year to keep visitors engaged the fair introduces a number of new events. For its 52nd year it is hosting an amateur chef contest.
The largest art festival in the state of Minnesota will begin at noon on Friday. The 51st annual Uptown Art Fair will take over Hennepin Avenue and Lake Street for three days. It’ll feature 355 artists from across the country and other nations.
For art lovers, it’s the biggest weekend of the year, and for artists like Cindy Krotz, it’s a chance to get some notoriety.
