Stockholm Art Fair turns 40
The annual Stockholm Art Fair happens 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday July 20 at the Village Park in Stockholm, nestled next to Lake Pepin.
The event has come a long way since its inception in 1974. Back then, a group of artists who had recently moved to the area held the art fair as a way to let the people know who they were and what they did.
The thinking was that if no one showed up, it would be just a picnic.
