Lemonade Concert and Art Fair is Thursday at SCSU


More than 150 vendors will be on hand to share their works with visitors of the 49th annual Lemonade Concert and Art Fair.

Vendors include artists who specialize in home and body care, candles, digital art, fiber, jewelry, metal work, photography and sculpture, among a multitude of other medias.

Live musicians will perform throughout the day and there will be a dozen food vendors on site.

“It’s a long-standing event that’s happened with St. Cloud State and our local community,” said Christa Hayes, director of Civic Engagement and Assessment at St. Cloud State University. “It’s almost like a bridge we want to keep upholding in our community. We just love the partnership with the City of St. Cloud and Granite City Days. We love the opportunity to open our doors on campus.”

This year’s event will tie into SCSU even further with the addition of the St. Cloud State Husky Express Science Bus. The University has a College of Science and Engineering and the bus stems from the department.

“It’s a place for kids to get some hands-on experience with engineering and science,” Hayes said. “It’s another way to incorporate the University into this community event. We really wanted to showcase something neat and unique about us.”
