The Street Faire at the Lakes in Downtown Detroit Lakes is the first outdoor artist fair of the summer! Join us each year the first Friday and Saturday after Memorial Day for two days of inspiring art, great music and fantastic food in the beautiful lakes area of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota!


Our Story

The Street Faire at the Lakes began in 2001 with a bit of a wing and a prayer! A group of downtown-loving Detroit Lakes natives came together and dreamt up the idea of having an outdoor art fair. As these things go, rumblings about what the duo was dreaming up got around town and people became intrigued and enthused so they put together a....committee. Yes, this word can get a bad rap, but in this case we landed one of the best committees that has ever existed! These amazing folk came together, learned from each other, challenged each other and created the Street Faire at the Lakes! If you'd like to get involved, please contact us here!
