Art Fair on the Green holds 63rd annual event at Myrick Park

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT)- An art fair that has been around La Crosse for a long time,  the Art Fair on the Green is celebrating its 63rd annual event.

This year’s art fair is a one-day event and takes place at Myrick Park.

80 different local and regional artists come and show and sell off some of their best work.

It doesn’t matter if it’s in a pandemic or in hot weather, event organizers want to make sure they’re able to support the next generations of artists.

“The end result is that we give out, and even last year were able to give out $28,000 worth of scholarships to local students, high school and college. So that’s why we will find a way to do it. And the artists know that and I think that’s why they come back,” said art fair chair member, Carol Robertson.

Admission was free but they are accepting donations that go towards local scholarships and grants.
