What are the plans for Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff in 2021?

Officials and organizers have the local communities’ best interest at heart. On February 22, St. Joseph City Commission approved the 2021 event with new precautions in place.

The Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff is scheduled for July 10 from 10 AM – 6 PM & 11 from 10 AM – 5 PM, 2021. It will be a gated and ticketed event in Lake Bluff Park with less than 200 artists. Select opportunities for free and/or discounted tickets will be provided to the local community.

The full proposal approved by the St. Joseph City Commission is available by clicking here.

Will I need to wear a mask while attending this year?

Yes. Masks will be required within event space for all guests over age 5; shield accommodation provided should any guests be unable to wear a mask. This includes vaccinated individuals.
