Patch Weekender: Jog Over to Eagan for the Art Festival
Check out the art, participate in activities and eat a variety of food at the 18th annual festival this year.
The art festival will be held from 9 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 23, and 10 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 24. Admission to the art festival is free.
View and purchase juried art in a variety of media, listen and watch a spectrum of performers, including Telluric Currents, Xibaba Latin Jazz and Tricia & the Toonies, among others. Get your children involved making creative cultural masks in the children's activities tent or savor tacos, gyros, Asian pork and other foods.
Artists at the festival are drawn from Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North and South Dakota and Wisconsin. Artist selection is determined by the quality of the work, mixture of mediums for the show and price point. This year's featured artist is Larry Landis.
If you want to wait for Burnsville's own fest, Art and All That Jazz is scheduled for the third week of August.
