The event traces its history to 1961 and a handful of
artists from the Acanthus Art Society exhibiting their
work in front of a local downtown business.
From these humble beginnings, the Wyandotte Street
Art Fair has grown to be one of the largest and best
attended fairs in the state.
THE PURPOSE OF THE WYANDOTTE STREET ART FAIR IS:
- To promote and expand community awareness of
the creative arts through quality exhibits that
provide meaningful, cultural enrichment.
- To offer the artist and visitor alike the
opportunity to meet one another in a hospitable
and festive atmosphere.
- To stimulate a sense of civic unity and pride
through the dynamics of cultural understanding.
