Here's What We'll Be Doing On Sunday!

43rd annual
Burlington, Iowa
Sunday, June 20, 2010
8 am - 4 pm
The Snake Alley Art Fair is a daylong celebration of creativity and community, centering on a love for the visual arts. Growing from a start more than 40 years ago as a small gathering of local artists who set up for the day along Snake Alley — the crookedest street in the world! — the fair is now an annual event with an estimated attendance of more than 6,000 people. SAAF encompasses much to see and buy from more than 100 exhibitor artists and craftspeople, plus art-making activities for children, music, and food. The fair happens in Burlington’s Heritage Hill Historic District, along winding, sloping Snake Alley as well as on two leafy residential blocks of North 6th Street above the alley.
The date for SAAF 2010 is Sunday, June 20. In keeping with long-standing tradition, the Snake Alley Art Fair coincides not only with Fathers Day, but also with the final day of the Steamboat Days American Music Festival on Burlington’s Mississippi riverfront, bringing thousands of additional visitors to the area.
RAIN OR SHINE, THE FAIR GOES ON! In case of truly inclement or dangerous weather, the Snake Alley Art Fair moves to its alternate site, the Des Moines County Fairgrounds at Southeastern Community College’s West Burlington campus, approximately 3.5 miles west of Snake Alley.
