Dogwood Arts Market Square Art Fair Apr. 15-17
Dogwood Arts FestivalApril 11, 2011 - Enjoy the Dogwood Arts Festival Market Square Art Fair this weekend April 15-17 at Market Square. Hours for the free Art Fair are Friday and Saturday 10 am to 8 pm and Sunday 11 am to 5 pm.

One of Dogwood Arts Festival's most cherished traditions, the Market Square Art Fair transforms downtown Knoxville into a lively street fair with high-quality arts and crafts booths, demonstrations, entertainment, and festive food.

An event the entire family will enjoy, the Market Square Art Fair showcases the original work of more than 70 local and regional artisans. Taking place in the heart of downtown Knoxville, this juried event brings together a range of talented artists and artisans who will be on hand to share their wares with the community. Live entertainment lies in wait around every corner, from street performers to a children's stage to an all-day lineup of bands on the Market Square stage. In addition to Market Square's own selection of unique caf├ęs and eateries, Art Fair-goers will have their pick of a wide variety of food vendors.

Market Square, located in the center of downtown Knoxville, was the site of the city's original marketplace, established in 1854. With the Art Fair, Market Square's identity as the city's communal centerpiece carries on into the 21st century.
