Every summer, talented artists flock to La Crosse to showcase their wares and celebrate their trade—all in the name of education. Here are five things you should know about the AAUW Art Fair on the Green before you go on July 27th-28th, 2019:

Art of all kinds

Pottery, baskets, drawings, fiber, glass, henna, jewelry, leather, mixed media, paintings, photography, printmaking, sculpture, wood. If you can think of it, you can find it at this eclectic event.

Price is right

For just $5 (12 and under are free), attendees get two full days of fun. You’ll not only get to enjoy the beautiful UW-La Crosse campus, but you’ll also have access to over 100 artists and food vendors.

For a good cause

Art Fair on the Green is a juried event that raises money for AAUW La Crosse’s scholarship fund.  Over the years it has provided $500,000 in scholarships and grants to local students and organizations.

Shop to your heart’s content

Find items for your home or stock up on gifts. The fine arts are truly at their finest here and with artists from all over the country, there are plenty of unique items to purchase.

A long-standing tradition

Art Fair on the Green has remained a popular event for 61 years. Drawing visitors from far and wide, AAUW has perfected their approach to this La Crosse staple.
