Work With Us

The Uptown Association Internship Program provides an excellent opportunity for students or recent graduates to receive hands-on experience at one of the most active business associations in the city of Minneapolis, as well as the producer of the nationally acclaimed Uptown Art Fair.

All internship positions have been filled at this time – check back in the future for openings.


There is no better way to share your expertise and enthusiasm for Uptown than to get involved in the community’s largest event (and actually the second largest event in the state of MN) than the Uptown Art Fair.

Join one of the Uptown Association’s most active committees, the Uptown Art Fair Board, where you will have an opportunity to meet new people, enhance your leadership skills, make new personal and professional contacts and just have fun. The time commitment is small and the reward is huge.   Don’t worry if you don’t have event planning experience or a deep knowledge about the arts; all you need is a desire to work on a great event with great people.

Uptown Art Fair Board:

Made up of residents, business folks, local artists, students, and art enthusiasts who meet monthly to help plan the event, discuss issues and collaborate on ways to make improvements, assist in execution and gain different perspectives on a wide variety of tasks along the Association staff.  The opinions and diversity of the committee is important to the success of the art fair.

 Focus Areas Include:

  • Food Vendors
  • Beverages
  • Operations
  • Culinary Arts Competition
  • Performance Stage
  • Youth Art Fair
  • Volunteers
  • Business Tent
