Celebrating the artistic spirit and cultural vitality of North Beach, The Upper Grant Avenue Fall Art Fair rekindles a popular tradition that began in 1954 during the height of the "Beat Generation".
The community-based, artist-run fair selects more than 100 local artists to fill three colorful blocks of world-famous Upper Grant Avenue with original creative arts and handcrafted works, including sculpture, photography, ceramics, installation art, painting, jewelry, glass works, clothing and textile arts. A fashion show featuring local merchants’ distinct jewelry, clothing and décor offerings, is a new event for 2004. A diverse mix of literary and performing artists -- from poets, authors and jazz musicians to troubadours, storytellers, and clowns -- entertains fairgoers on Upper Grant Avenue between Vallejo and Filbert Streets.
