NEW this year, we are seeking the public’s input by voting for the official Downtown Fargo Street Fair collectible sticker.
“We’re pleased to sponsor the commission for this year’s Downtown Fargo Street Fair artwork,” said Dan Doeden, market president of Alerus in Fargo. “Artists and creativity are an important part of our community, and this event. We look forward to seeing this year’s theme come to life and getting even more involved with the selection process by opening the voting up to the public.”

The 2020 selected artist will receive $750, their artwork featured on all 2020 Fargo Street Fair promotional materials which include T-Shirts, collectible sticker, Downtown Fargo website, Downtown Fargo Street Fair Facebook page, Coke truck back, along with a notable mention on the main map for the 45th Annual Downtown Fargo Street Fair.
