2017 Performance Stage Application - Uptown Art Fair
The Uptown Association invites you to apply to be a performer on the Performance Stage at the 2017 Uptown Art Fair.

This award winning event is held in Uptown Minneapolis and will take place from August 4 - 6. Uptown Minneapolis is an electric mix of commercial and residential properties in South Minneapolis. The intersection of Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue is the center of a lively, business district and is one of the busiest intersections in the state of Minnesota. The Art Fair is promoted aggressively through dedicated marketing vehicles including web, print, TV, outdoor, radio and social media generating over 150,000 of impressions in 2016. With exposure to an ideal audience, the art fair draws a diverse group of nearly 400,000 loyal and new attendees. Through this free cultural experience, attendees have the opportunity to visit over 340 artists, food vendors, outdoor beer gardens, live stage performances sponsored by 96.3 K-TWIN in the evenings, a youth art fair, and much more. As this year marks the fifty-fourth time that this successful event will be celebrated, we want to make it the best fair yet!
