Local art fair: Volksfest & Art Fair in Victoria, MN

Yesterday afternoon I swung by the sweet little town of Victoria, MN to check out their annual Volksfest & Art Fair and I was really impressed with the number of kids activities: gymnastics mats, a rock climbing wall, a dunk tank, and face painting, just to name a few! The kids weren't the only ones having fun though - there were many food and beer tents and a wide variety of artists. The weather was perfect and the fair seems to be growing - I recommend you mark your calendars and attend next year!

One of my favorite TJ Brecht items.

One of my favorite booths was TJ Brecht's handmade furniture. You can check out a few of their items on their website, but I must say it doesn't do them justice! Their booth was very eye-catching and they have really unique, striking items including tables, small hutches, shelves, grandfather clocks, and more. Take a peek and let us know what you think. Don't you just love their pieces?

  1. What wonderful work! Great craftsmanship. I live far away from Victoria, MN, but may have to mark my calendar for next year anyway.

  2. Thank you, Christa for the posting and for sharing in our passion for recycling! We invite everyone to visit our booth Sept. 10-11 at the Fall into the Arts Festival, Centennial Lakes Park in Edina.

  3. Yes! VHoward, I do recommend making the trip. It is a fun, family festival! Very low key but well represented! And Chris, thank you for mentioning the Fall into the Arts Festival in Edina. Just a week and a half away!
