The Park Avenue Summer Art Fest will be celebrating its 44th anniversary this Saturday August 1 and Sunday August 2, 2020. Hosted by the Park Avenue Revitalization Committee, the festival has been produced by The Springut Group Inc since 1998.

The festival runs along both sides of Park Avenue, a trendy tree-lined street of Victorian homes, independent shops and outdoor cafes, for 1 ¼ mile from Alexander Street to Culver Road. Booths are set up on the curb back across the sidewalks, leaving the street open for the estimated 225,000 festival-goers. The street is closed to traffic during the festival hours of 10am-6pm on Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday, but open for vehicles before and after, so that artists may pull up to their booths to load and unload.

The emphasis is on the 300+ juried art and crafters, but it is also definitely a festival, with three stages of music and a lively mix of other activities. In addition, the approximately 75 members of the Park Avenue Merchants Association are allowed to display and sell their wares in front of their stores.

A panel of respected local artists selects the participants for the show in April in a blind jury. New artists are required to send a photograph of themselves in their workshop creating their art. There is a mixture from fine art to crafts, but no buy and sell is allowed.

Amenities to the show are preferred hotel rates, drive-up load in and load out, a continental breakfast on Sunday morning and our amazing Block Captains who are there to help you as needed.
