Fridge Art Fair back on after last-minute cancellation

Fridge Art Fair, planned for Miami Beach, is back on after a last-minute cancellation.

The small fair’s Facebook and Twitter accounts announced Friday the event was still happening despite an email from founder Eric Ginsburg saying it was off on Thursday.

The cancellation had to do with problems over a special-events permit from the city of Miami Beach, Ginsburg told the Miami Herald. But the fair managed to secure the blessing of city officials late Thursday night.

“It was a complete nightmare,” Ginsburg said. “Yesterday was the worst day of my life. I felt terrible for all the galleries and artists. We’re a little fair. We don’t have the funds the other fairs have . . . I’m just beyond glad we managed to fix it.”

Fridge will take place at the Holiday Inn, 4333 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. http://www.fridgeartfair.com
