7th Annual Beekman Street Art Fair
Join us on Sunday, June 9, 2019, 10 am – 5 pm for a one-day fun day on Beekman Street! Enjoy a juried art and craft show, musical groups, open mic, street performers, makers’ spaces for kids and adults, and food trucks all in the Beekman St Arts District from Grand Ave to West Circular, which will be closed to traffic.
In addition to the dazzling selection of fine art and craft, there will be an opportunity for people to partake in the Arts Spark Community Mystery Mural Project. In this interactive experience, participants of all ages are invited to join in the creation of a unique art project in which participants help create a mural of an iconic Saratoga location.
There will be something for every age group under the Maker Space Tent from 10am to 2pm. Kristin Marshall and Jenna Eddy, owners of Community Roots School, will lead children in activities celebrating springtime. For adults there will be hands-on activities presented by C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios and Sustainable Saratoga.
Later under the Ash Street tent, Rick Bolton will host the Open Mic for Young Performers from 2:00 to 4:00 and the Blackouts will play from 4:00 to 5:00 pm. Additionally, several Beekman Street restaurants and businesses will host musical acts in their own venues.
Street performers from Circus Theatricks and Balloon Gal Jenny will be strolling the street to entertain the young ones.
Hungry? Thirsty? We've got a delicious line-up of food trucks coming to the fair, including Fitzy’s Fork in the Road, Fresh Squeezed, High Noon, O’Pablos, Inc., Pies on Wheels, The Plaid Pancake and Smoothies on Wheels. In addition, the Principessa Elena Society will be serving traditional Italian fare outside their facility on Oak Street. Join us and bring your appetite!
