There's a Little Artist in All of Us

We’re gearing up for sweater weather, spooky decorations and pumpkin flavored everything.  October is just around the corner and the weather is ideal for fall festivals, outdoor concerts and art fairs – the biggest and most popular being the St. James Art Fair. 

Soon over 700 artists and craftspeople will descend upon Louisville the first weekend in October.  This 3-day event begins October 6th and ends on the 8th and takes place in the heart of historic Old Louisville, most notably in St. James Court, Belgravia Court, Magnolia Avenue and part of 3rd & 4th streets.

The attraction draws nearly 300,000 people yearly, approximately one-third from out of state.  Visitors shop paintings, sculpture, pottery, glass art, photography, jewelry, furniture and much more.  

The event is sponsored by various corporate donors. It’s interesting to know that originally the art fair was founded to produce much needed revenue since the area was in decline at that time.  Since then, Old Louisville became a historic district in 1975 and today boasts the largest collection of restored Victorian homes in the country.

So if you want to shop, eat or just take in the scenery, you can’t afford to miss the St. James Art Fair - October 6th – 8th, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm each day.
