DULUTH, Minn.-While the 2021 Park Point Art Fair, usually scheduled for this weekend, has been canceled; the community has begun planning for an even bigger celebration in 2022. 2022 will be The Park Point Art Fair’s 50th year, a celebration that is all the more anticipated since the fair’s cancelation two years in a row due to covid.
The Park Point Community Club, who hosts the art fair annually, made the decision to cancel the art fair back in January when artists typically begin the application process. At that time the City of Duluth had strict guidelines for events in city parks. These guidelines made The Park Point Recreation Area a difficult place to hold an event.
“The Park is a beautiful setting but limiting the public’s attendance was not feasible”, said Carla Tamburro, Park Point Art Fair coordinator. "The absence of the fair will be especially hard for our community as we struggle to heal from a difficult year."
Park Point Art Fair committee members encourage the Duluth community and visitors to support our local artists this weekend. You can find links to local artists on The Park Point Art Fair website or shop in local galleries and shops.
