Slow Art Day is a worldwide celebration of art that encourages people to look at art SLOWLY – and thereby experience art in a new way.

You can see more about Slow Art Day and the mission behind it on our website:

**Please RSVP with your commitment to attend so we can know how many printed tour guides to create.**

The Melrose Trading Post hosts several local artists every Sunday. What will make this Slow Art Day celebration unique is your ability to speak with the artists who created the pieces you will be observing.  We are currently connecting with our artists to see which ones would like to participate and while pieces they recommend for the group to observe.

Art is very important to us at the Melrose Trading Post.  The money raised from the admission gate and booth rentals funds several arts education programs that directly benefit Fairfax High School Students.

Melrose Trading Post Food Court 

The food options in the food court of the Melrose Trading Post include Argentinian barbeque, world class crepes, a Mexican food vendor who also sells hamburgers and hot dogs, plus there is a beverage and snacks vendor.  All vendors sell at fair prices, use fresh ingredients and your food is made to order.  

About the Melrose Trading Post

Described as a cool, eclectic gem of a place to find treasures and rare goodies, the Melrose Trading Post is a great Sunday destination.  You can expect to find something to make you say "wow" every single time you visit.   Enjoy the food court in the beautifully landscaped upper quad.  Relax to the live jazz band's melodic vibes.  Treat yourself to a different kind of day.  

Overseen by Greenway Arts Alliance and Friends of Fairfax, The Melrose Trading Post is widely regarded as the most successful ongoing fundraising event in the history of the Los Angeles Unified School District.  Held every Sunday in the parking lot of Fairfax High School, the weekly antiques and collectibles market is home to nearly 200 vendors.  It's the perfect place to people watch and shop! 

Located in the parking lot of Fairfax High School

(Corner of Fairfax and Melrose Avenue)
