2021 In-Person Fair Canceled

2021 In-Person Fair Canceled

The 57th Street Art Fair Committee has made the final decision after much deliberation, and considerable sadness, to cancel the in-person event June 5-6.

There are many considerations behind this difficult decision.  Concerns for the health and safety of our artists, visitors, volunteers and community remain a primary focus, but the additional time and cost to implement a safely modified in-person event this were also factors in our decision making.  Click here to read more about how we made this difficult decision.

At this time, we will focus on our ongoing 2021 57th Street Art Fair virtual event at https://www.57thstreetartfair.org/virtual-fair.  Our 2021 Virtual Fair will be live through May, 2022 and features more than 100 incredible artists selling original works of art.  You can learn more about different artists featured daily here.

The committee and the neighborhood will miss seeing everyone again this year, and are looking ahead to next year, when we hope to see everyone in-person to celebrate our 75th Anniversary!

Thank you again for your patience, optimism, and understanding,

the 57th Street Art Fair Committee
