Deadline: 15 Mar 2020

The event takes place on June 27 & 28 from 10 pm-5 pm in Duluth, MN.

The Park Point Art Fair annually showcases professionally juried artists in a stunning outdoor environment on the shores of Lake Superior. For over forty years, as PPCC’s signature event and as an original festival of its kind for northeastern Minnesota, the fair has embodied the club’s mission by serving the local and regional community—culturally, economically, and socially.

The PPCC’s art fair proceeds support youth programs, environmental projects, and a community newspaper – service projects that benefit the Park Point Community serve the wider population of Duluth inhabitants. These projects have fostered a unity of purpose among volunteers, artists, and fair goers alike.

This is truly a grassroots event – from the organization and its happening to spending the money it generates. Volunteers and artists are well aware of the contributions made to the environment and the youth programs on the part of the Club and a unison of purpose and good will has driven its success and longevity.

Park Point Art Fair Artist Benefits

Artists are awarded for excellence based on the annual review of the field by art professionals. The Club awards a total of $1,300 along with ‘art work awards’ produced by one of the participating artists to artists in seven categories as well as a Best of Show.

The PPCC provides an appreciation dinner for the artists and the community volunteers. The Club hosted dinner gives community volunteers and artists the opportunity to socialize and catch up from year to year. The Saturday dinner has served to foster lasting relationships between artists and the community giving the whole event the feeling of a family reunion.
