The St. James Court Art Show (Old Louisville) is on Friday, Oct. 6 and Saturday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 8 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. One of the best art fairs in the country, it has official and unofficial sections that span the streets around Central Park. It’s full of art, people-watching and carny food.
One of the unofficial parts (maybe “officially unofficial” since it’s been around since 1997) is the Louisville UnFair (Second and Magnolia Streets behind the Magnolia Bar & Grill). It features affordable art by local artists that’s on sale on Friday, Oct. 6 and Saturday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 8 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Nunnlea Craft Fair (1940 Hurstbourne Parkway) is Oct. 7-8 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday. It is the Nunnlea Historic Home’s 12th annual fair with 50 juried craft artists. And one to put on the calendar: Sullivan University (2100 Gardiner Lane) had its first Louisville Open Air Fair earlier this year. It was such a success that they decided to put on two a year. The next one is Saturday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. —Jo Anne Triplett
