Street Art Festival kicks off August 15-17 

Mpls Downtown Improvement District and Hennepin Theatre Trust are pleased to present the first annual Downtown Minneapolis Street Art Festival - the new signature downtown art experience for residents and visitors that celebrates street art in all its forms. Join us for an inclusive, vibrant and unforgettable experience in the heart of downtown Mpls.

This free festival brings together artists from the worlds of visual, performing, craft, and food arts and unleashes them together for the first time onto the streets of downtown for all to enjoy. Festival-goers will relish in several arts-centered experiences, including a two-block long series of chalk art installations, a short film showcase, live performances, outdoor craft market, food and beverage, and more #OnNicollet and Hennepin.
