Event Summary
Celebrating its 22nd year, the Menlo Park Sidewalk Fall Art Stroll is set in this vibrant, friendly, tree-lined neighborhood conveniently located between San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. The city’s rich history is reflected in its pleasant downtown that serves as the shopping core for this affluent area. The inclusion of “Firsts, Seconds and Samples!” is the event’s new addition giving artists the advertised opportunity to offer for sale handcrafted works they consider “flawed.” Join us for this event and in addition to your favorite “Firsts,” take the opportunity to sell your lovely samples and imperfect pieces! There isn't a street closure for this event; artist and crafter spaces line the sidewalk at the curb with shoppers walking between artisans and merchants. Our sidewalk events are laid back with downtown shoppers as our customers. There is no competition with sponsor/food booths or stages giving the patron more time and space to visit with the artisans. The 15-foot length (single booth) allows for more frontage for your work to be viewed both from the sidewalk and the street.
