1st Annual Art Affair
Downtown Partners is launching a series of Block Parties in Downtown Sioux City to promote local businesses in a new and exciting way. The 1st Annual Art Affair will kick things off on Saturday, August 18th in front of the Benson Building on 7th Street. From 10 A.M. to 3 P.M., local artists will line the street to display and sell their artwork in a festival-like atmosphere. This event is FREE to attend, where you can browse and purchase local art, have lunch with food vendors and listen to strolling musicians. There will also be face painters and art contests for you and your family to participate in.
Kalynn Sortino, Business and Entrepreneur Support Coordinator for Downtown Partners explains, “Our goal is to find different ways to showcase local talent in Downtown! There is so much our community has to offer and to have an event as simple and unique as this was essential. The artists love showing their work and interacting with the community, and the community love to have events outside that utilize the blocks in a unique way.”
Artists wanting to participate in this event must register and fill out a short form detailing what type of artwork they would like to sell. Registration is now open to the public on Downtown Partners website and facebook page. Registration will close, Friday, July 23rd.
