About the Midsummer Nights' Fair
The 37th Annual Midsummer Nights’ Fair will take place on Friday, August 23 and Saturday, August 24, 2013, from 6:00 – 11:00 p.m. The event will be held in Lions Park, Flood Avenue and Symmes, adjacent to the Firehouse Art Center.
The Midsummer Nights’ Fair is one of the largest arts fairs in Norman, taking place in the evening, with a one of a kind atmosphere. The Firehouse Art Center takes this opportunity to showcase local artists, share their mission to provide quality art experiences and demonstrate their passion for the visual arts to the community. This juried arts festival features 30 unique, high-quality artist booths that offer pottery, jewelry, glass, sculpture, woodworking and more. The fair is a great opportunity to speak with artists and purchase original works of art priced for every budget, from student to collector.
With artist’s booths arranged to resemble a “town square”, a large central tent will host demonstrations by FAC faculty members and attendees are invited to participate in drawing and sculpting. The Children’s Art Wall will be available for young painters to express themselves, with the assistance of local artists and Firehouse faculty. Attendees will also be treated to two music stages, one featuring local bands and the other McMichael School of Music Rock Clinic bands.
The Midsummer Nights’ Fair is the Firehouse Art Center’s way of giving back to the community. “We are grateful for the continuing support of local artists and members of the community who make it possible for the Firehouse to provide quality art education and exhibitions,” said Executive Director, Douglas Shaw Elder.
