The 42nd edition of 5th Avenue Arts Festival will have a new location this year.

It will be held this year at the newly constructed Santa Fe College Blount Hall campus outside in the building’s parking lot and between Northwest Third and West University avenues on Northwest Fifth Street.

Returning after a two-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival will be held from 11 a..m.-7 p.m. Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday. The green space on Northwest Sixth Street will not be used this year, and this year will mark the first time in many years that festival vendors won;’t be set up between Northwest Third and Seventh avenues on Northwest Sixth Street..

The festival is organized by the Cultural Arts Coalition (CAC), a nonprofit organization with a purpose to educate and empower the community through the arts, culture and social awareness programs. As has bee the custom since its creation, festival goers will celebrate the rich cultural heritage of a historic Black community through the arts while enjoying a weekend of top notch art, great music, dancing, children’s activities, great food, vendors, lots of mingling and fun.
