From the website:
The Powderhorn Art Fair is a collaboration between the Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association,
the Minneapolis Park Board, and the Powderhorn community. Event proceeds support programs at Powderhorn Park.
For two days each summer, white tents dot the landscape around Powderhorn Park bringing individuals from all over the country together to enjoy an abundance of creativity and skill that flows through the artists participating in the Powderhorn Art Fair.
The park, the lake, the surrounding community, and the committed, “behind the scene” individuals make this a picturesque event; however, the real beauty of the Powderhorn Art Fair is that the event’s impact is felt throughout the year and not just on event days.
Proceeds from the Art Fair help fund park programs such as theatre arts, a computer lab, teen center, music recording studio, pottery studio and team sports – giving neighborhood residents of all ages a safe environment in which to play, learn and grow.
As you stroll through the Fair – appreciating the artwork – please take a moment to reflect on your importance to Powderhorn Park and our community. We encourage you to take the time to experience the uniqueness of the Powderhorn Park neighborhood and hope that you will visit us regularly – whether for one of our many annual events or for a simple walk around the lake. You are welcome always!
