OUR 2019 FEATURED ARTIST

Congratulations to Avenues resident and local artist Gunter Radinger,  who has been selected as this year's Featured Artist.   Gunter has created this image which is the theme art of the 2019 Avenues Street Fair and will be on our event promotional materials, posters, print ads, t-shirt and totes:

ABOUT THE FEATURED ARTIST program:  Each year the Avenues selects a local artist to crate an original work of art that says "What the Avenues Means to Me." The artist then creates a piece of art that becomes the theme image of the Fair, and is used on our event poster and in all our publicity materials.  The artist is given a complimentary booth at the Fair.  See more about the Avenues Street Fair Featured Artist program and see the work of past Featured Artists: pdfFeatured Artist Program

The Avenues Street Fair Celebrates Salt Lake City's Avenues Neighborhoods

The Avenues Street Fair began in Salt Lake City, Utah, in the 1970s as a remodeling tool exchange. It expanded into a home tour event to see everyone's handiwork with the borrowed tools, and eventually became a true street fair and is now one of Utah’s premier community celebrations. We hold the Avenues Street Fair on a different street each year to highlight the eclectic architecture and history of the Avenues neighborhoods.  After gaining resident and City approval, we block off five blocks of one of the Avenues east-west streets, set up a stage at each end of the fair for all-day live music, and we fill both sides of the street with 200 booths of local arts and crafts, food vendors, government agencies and local non-profit organizations providing information and unique experiences.  This year's event will be held on 2nd Avenue between M and R Streets.

VENDORS:  Applications are open until August 15 for local artists and craftspersons, political candidates, non-profit organizations, food and drink vendors, and government agencies. Click here for the Vendor Booth Rules.  Click herre for the Vendor Application.    

FAMILY FRIENDLY: The Fair has an all-day free children's activity area, and a Children's Parade at 9:00 a.m. to start the Fair!   All are invited to participate. 

PEOPLE's ART GALLERY: This is a space at the Avenues Street Fair where artists of any age can display their work and be judged to win cool prizes!  Learn more HERE.
