The festival was orginially created to promote local artists, but has evolved into a favorite summer event of crafts, food, and entertainment for many Bismarck-Mandan residents.
Held in conjunction with Mandan Rodeo Days and Fourth of July celebration, the festivities attract thousands of exhibitors and visitors from across North Dakota and neighboring states. This year's event is hosting nearly 150 arts and crafts booths and 30 food vendors.
The Art in the Park festival will be in Robert Dykshoorn Park and Heritage Park in Mandan from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday.
