Emerging Artists Opportunity
This opportunity is geared towards individuals who have great potential in their artistic practice but have not yet received major recognition for their work. Artists may be any age, but we specifically invite those artists with little to no exhibition experience. Art Center of Burlington encourages students and young artists to apply. Emerging artists are set up on Snake Alley.
Food Trucks Needed
We are looking for high quality and diverse food options! Pay a space fee and keep all of your sales. All vendors must comply with Iowa state and county public health regulations governing the preparation, handling, and presentation of food. Vendors selling prepared foods are responsible for obtaining all necessary licenses and/or permits.
Snake Alley Art Fair is a daylong celebration of creativity and community, centering on a love for the visual arts. Growing from a start more than 50 years ago as a small gathering of local artists who set up for the day along historic Snake Alley, "The Crookedest Street in the World!"
Now an annual event, SAAF encompasses much to see and buy from Midwest artists. Everything at the Snake Alley Art fair is handmade and original. Meet the artist and learn about what inspires them and how they create their art. Each piece is made with love and care. SAAF offers a one of a kind experience to see and purchase original works of fine art directly from the artists who create them!
This family event also entails art-making activities for children, live music, and the best food vendors.
The Fair is organized by Art Center of Burlington, a local non-profit organization with a mission to use the power of art to awaken the creative nature that is in every person, to connect us socially and to contribute to the vibrancy of Burlington.
