The Community Showcase will feature 25 local artists with varying ties to the Powderhorn Park Community or other neighborhoods across Minneapolis and St. Paul. This is just one of several artist categories that bring this iconic, eclectic, and well-attended regional art fair to life.

Over the past 33 years, the Powderhorn Art Fair has showcased thousands of juried artists across the Midwest, spanning 20 artistic mediums.

The fair’s continued success is enhanced by PPNA’s partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and unwavering support from the Powderhorn community.
