The Edina Fall into the Arts Festival graces the scenic and beautiful Centennial Lakes Park in Edina each September with an eclectic array of over 225 original artists displaying and selling their work. From pottery and paintings to jewelry, metal and wood working, everyone will find something unique to treasure. In 2022, for the first time, there will be live entertainment in the Maetzold Amphitheater and a special Kid’s Zone for families with special activities. This event is also dog friendly so feel free to bring along your four-legged friend.
The Festival will also be presenting a wide array of gourmet food vendors and all the usual favorite treats from around the world. Tibetan Momos, Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, Kettle Corn and Chicago Dogs are long-time favorites, but also featured will be local Edina food truck Thumbs Cookies and the Muddy Tiger, a favorite at the local Edina Farmer’s Market serving tasty Indian-inspired fare. More than a dozen food vendors will be present, serving up mouth-watering dishes!
