Open Up Sheffield is an open art show held in Sheffield usually over two consecutive weekends during May Day Bank Holiday and either the preceding or following weekend. The shows take place over a range of venues, mainly in artists' own studios, and encourage visitors to the studios to discuss with the artists concerned their work and working practices. Most artists participating have work for sale. It showcases the best in amateur and professional art in Sheffield work from Sheffield and surrounding areas.

Open Up Sheffield has been running for over 10 years[when?] and has consistently provided a showcase for emerging artists in Sheffield and South Yorkshire who would not otherwise have an outlet for their work.
