St James Art Show / Unfair Art Fair

One of the things I love about living in Louisville is that there is hardly ever lack of something to do.  Two of my favorite events of the year are coming up and the best part about it is that they are the same weekend and right next to each other.  Two birds, one stone!  

The St. James Art Fair and the Unfair Art Fair are on totally different spectrums when it comes to the art they showcase.  These are two events that not only bring people from around the region to Louisville but people from around the country and both display the diversity of our growing, little city.  


As you can see, this is the 56th year for the St. James Art Show.  It is a juried fine arts and fine crafts show that hosts an impressive 750 artists from North America. Held in the heart of historic Old Louisville among the country’s largest collection of Victorian homes, the St. James Art Show has for over five decades provided the neighborhood, city and state with a rich cultural and artistic legacy.

unfair stuff

The Unfair Art Fair, on the other hand, has only been around for 13 years but that doesn't mean it is any less of a show!  They were actually voted 2nd best art fair in the city of Louisville by Leo Weekly readers, "Right behind that other art fair down the street from us".  Located in the backyard of the MAG BAR, it was started by Paul Harshaw and Greg Edwards in response to The St. James Art Fair turning to "corporate craft crap". The UNFAIR hopes to continue to be beacon of local artists for years to come.

Both events will be held - 
October 5, 6 & 7. 
Hours: Friday & Saturday 10:00am – 6:00pm, Sunday 10:00am – 5:00pm. 
Admission is Free. No Pets.

Here's an idea… let's be friends!
