Sioux Falls, SD — As the end of summer gets closer, so does one of the longest running festivals in Sioux Falls. The 59th Annual Sidewalk Arts Festival is Saturday, September 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This exciting event is a great opportunity to enjoy a day of shopping with local vendors while supporting the Washington Pavilion.
Admission is FREE. The region’s largest one-day arts festival takes place in downtown Sioux Falls on the streets surrounding the Washington Pavilion: Main and Dakota Avenue between 10th and 13th Street, 11th Street from Main west to Minnesota Avenue and in the parking lots south of the Pavilion.
More than 230 fine art, folk art, craft, nonprofit and food vendors will be in attendance, and engaging activities are provided for children. Several long-time vendors have reserved booths, and many new vendors will participate for the first time. The Washington Pavilion will also offer one-day flash sales on show tickets and memberships, available only in person the day of the festival.
Additional FREE entertainment will be offered throughout the day in the Paladino Hohm Sculpture Garden located along 11th Street between Dakota and Main. Everyone’s favorite dinosaur Radley Rex will make appearances at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
