The city’s premier grassroots arts festival, Red Hot Art & Music Festival is a weekend long event that serves as a showcase for emerging Twin Cities artists, offering them and arts enthusiasts alike the opportunity to create flourishing relationships through support and networking. The event, free and open to the public, also provides a way to reclaim the park for neighborhood residents and local families. Our mission is to celebrate the artistic diversity and urban vibrancy of Minneapolis in the historic Stevens Square-Loring Heights neighborhood. Red Hot Art is presented by the Stevens Square Community Organization (SSCO), one of the longest running community organizations in the city.
