Downtown Fargo Street Fair announces selected artist
FARGO — After reviewing 13 submitted pieces, the Downtown Community Partnership has selected the art that will represent the 44th annual Downtown Fargo Street Fair this summer.
The 2019 piece was created by Tracy Melendez, a local artist and Fargo North High School Teacher. A panel of jurors felt Melendez's piece best captured the spirit of celebration that the Downtown Fargo Street Fair brings to the Fargo-Moorhead community, according to a news release.
The Downtown Fargo Street Fair features more than 250 vendors offering handmade art, crafts, food, beer, wine and more, as well as live, on-street and stage entertainment. The event is free and open to all ages, and runs July 18-20.
