The 6th Annual Beekman St Art Fair is set for Sunday June 10, 2018 from 10 am till 5 pm. Over 50 juried fine artists and craft artists will set up individual tents on Beekman, which will be closed to traffic from Grand Ave to West Circular. Enjoy musical performances throughout the Arts District, a Children’s Art Tent, a Makers’ Tent, strolling street performers, and gourmet food trucks. Stop in to see the new shops and galleries on Beekman. Sample show specials and ‘after the fair’ entertainment at the restaurants and clubs in the neighborhood. Make a day of it and join us rain or shine for a fun and inspiring day on Beekman Street!
Saratoga Arts made this program possible with a Community Arts Grant funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
The Arts District on Beekman, Inc is seeking artists and artisans to participate in a one-day street fair on Beekman Street in the Saratoga Arts District on Sunday, June 10, 2018.  This event is heavily promoted and marketed to a wide range of local and northeast region art patrons.
 Each exhibitor will be assigned a 10 x 10 space along the western side of Beekman Street. The event is held rain or shine; white display tents are strongly recommended in case of inclement weather and to keep the look of the show unified.  This family-friendly event will also feature musical performances, children’s art and makers’ tents, roaming street performers, and specialty food trucks.  Our previous events on Beekman have been very successful- artists report strong sales, knowledgeable patrons, and good follow-up sales and contacts. We are hoping to build on this event each year, making it the kick-off art event of the summer season in Saratoga. Thank you for your interest in being a part of it!
