The Allen Park Street Fair turns 40 this weekend. With art fairs and festivals becoming a summer tradition, this fair plans to showcase many unique and handcrafted works of art. Committee member Tina Righetti and artist Don Hall joined host Tati Amare on “Live In The D” to discuss what people can expect from the art fair.
Tina said there will be over 150 artisans from all over the country. Attendees won’t go hungry as 20 food vendors will also be available. The Allen Park Street Fair is expecting over 100,000 people this weekend.
Don Hall has been creating art for about 10 years. He was kind enough to bring his unique art into the studio. Tati asked Don about his inspiration behind his artwork. One of Don’s themes in his art are frogs, which Tati adores. He says everything he does is metal and silverware. The silverware is unique because he turned some of them into fashionable rings. Don also brought wind chimes, sculptures and key rings.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the art fair, Tina says the entertainment aspect of the fair is back this year. From 5:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., people can listen to live music and enjoy the beer tent, which is also making a comeback.
