Uptown Minneapolis is an eclectic mix of commercial, retail, and residential properties in South Minneapolis. The intersection of Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue is the center of a lively, upbeat business district and is one of the busiest intersections in the state of Minnesota, creating the perfect location for a fine art festival. Lake Harriet, Lake of the Isles, and Cedar Lake are only a few blocks away, making Uptown's tree-lined streets both welcoming and walkable.
The primary focus of the Uptown Art Fair is the juried exhibition of gallery quality fine art. Additionally, the event offers family activities including a youth art fair, day and evening performances, a wine garden, and high quality outdoor food vending.
