ART IN THE PARK

Stevens Point, WI

Countdown to Art in the Park 2014!

 
 

Art in the Park Stevens Point is a gathering of artists and crafts people who have their work for sale or are demonstrating their craftsmanship.  They have come together to share their abilities with the community of all ages.  Children come to Art in the Park to participate in artistic projects and grownups come to experience & purchase art. 


The 45th Art in the Park will take place on September 20, 2014.  It is held at Pfiffner Pioneer Park in downtown Stevens Point, along the banks of the Wisconsin River.  The outdoor setting is held rain or shine. 


Art in the Park began 45 years ago when art was not a large priority in the community.  A group of adults wanted children to experience many facets of art, with hands on activities.  From molding clay to painting cardboard boxes into a city & many activities in between, children of all ages come to the park. Now that some artistic programs are being cut from school budgets, it is even more important for children to have art exposure. 


Art in the Park is open to youth crafters wishing to display & sell their art or crafts.   There is no fee for any one under the age of 18 who would like to set up a booth at Art in the Park. Adults can also participate as vendors for a fee of $50.00 per booth area.  Sign up before April 15th and receive $10 off!


Artistic activities such as face painting, cardboard city creation, hand made paper, building wood scrap projects, tie-dying, & other take & make art projects.  Area non-profit organizations provide adult volunteers to supervise these projects.  Children of all ages are invited to participate in these free projects.


Food is also provided under the food tent.  Various non-profit groups provide food such as hamburgers, chili, tacos boats, hot pork sandwiches, loaded baked potatoes, sweets, and soda.   Tak Yee Egg Rolls & kettle corn is also provided by businesses for profit.
