Get ready for a Greeley tradition next weekend, July 28 and 29. Over 150 artisans from all over the nation will gather in Greeley’s historic Lincoln Park to sell their hand-made wares ranging from pottery, paintings, and pet products to glassware, gourmet food and garden art.  Plus, if you feel like taking a shopping break there is always the Beer Garden and live entertainment all day.

Greeley’s annual Arts Picnic will celebrate 34 years of summertime fun Saturday, July 28, from 9:00a.m.–5:00p.m. and Sunday, July 29 from 9:00a.m.–4:00p.m.  Considered one of Northern Colorado’s best arts, crafts & music festivals, the Arts Picnic draws more than 20,000 people to Greeley’s historic Lincoln Park.

Well known Colorado performers including the Halden Wofford & The Hi-Beams, Quemando, Mojomama, and Homeslice will entertain on two stages throughout the weekend.  Clowns, magicians and storytellers will amuse the very young “picnickers” on the Merry Makers Kids’ Stage.  While in Creation Station Kids’ Hands-On Area, mini-Monets and pint-size-Picassos will be busy with projects that encourage creativity and excite the imagination. Don’t miss this annual feast of fun for everyone!
