Out with the old in with the new – El Portal’s 3rd Annual Art Fair will be a two-day celebration rather than a one-day affair as years prior. 2017, will see a renewed El Portal Art Fair, complete with a grand opening, live concert, art gallery, food trucks, kid activities, live performance art and so much more – including a special contest.
Before the Village’s Art Fair starts on February 3rd, the village will be conducting a new logo contest called El Portal: The Village’s New Logo Contest. Community members from all over Miami-Dade County have the chance to be selected as the winner of the Village’s new official logo. From now until January 23rd, community members can submit their design for voting.
On January 24th, three finalists will be selected and a winner will be announced at the Art Fair’s Unveiling Reception on February 3rd at 7:30pm.
