It’s six blocks of art, music, entertainment and food. Our Street Faire at Detroit Lakes, Minnesota has it all. On June 2 ( 10am to 7pm ) & 4 (10am to 5pm), 2023, Detroit Lakes cordons off the downtown for the first, big outdoor event of the season.
One hundred and twenty-five juried artists set up their paintings, sculptures, pottery, jewelry and other first class art. Musicians stroll the sidewalks. Bands perform from a main stage, free to attendees.
There’s something for everyone. Your children will love having their faces painted and riding on the carnival rides. You can mellow out with classic folk music or soothing Bluegrass.
Eat your way through the food court. It’s summer time and Our Street Faire is the perfect way to begin the season. For more information, see the Street Faire at the Lakes website or call the Detroit Lakes Community & Cultural Center, 218-844-4221.
