Arts Picnic Postponed - See you all in July 2021!
Officials decided to cancel the 2020 Arts Picnic to protect the health and safety of attendees, exhibitors, and staff. During this pandemic hosting a large gathering could threaten the health of so many. We understand and share in the disappointment of
missing out this year on one of Greeley’s many great events, but are looking forward to next year's event. Read the press release.
Since its beginning in 1979, the Arts Picnic’s mission has held steadfast…creating a venue for artists and crafters to sell their handmade wares, showcasing local performers’ talents, and offering hands-on arts and musical activities
for kids. Because of the Arts Picnic’s solid foundation built by dedicated citizens well versed in the importance of a healthy arts community, this much-anticipated summertime festival is still going strong. Arts Picnic has grown from 2,000
visitors its first year to welcoming over 20,000 to the same tree-filled park where it began. It is now a nationally known event accepting over 150 artists’ and crafters’ applications from all over the United States selling everything
from pottery and paintings, soap to sculptures and gourmet food to garden art! Shoppers can grab a cool one in the beer garden or enjoy mouth-watering cuisine from around the world in the food court including Greek, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Italian,
plus good old American BBQ. Some of the best Colorado talent is featured on two stages throughout the weekend while stilt walkers, balloon twisters, magicians, and a circus troupe roam through the park. Creation Station is perfect for all the mini-Monets
and pint-size Picassos where they can let their imaginations run free with make ‘n take arts and crafts projects. You won’t want to miss this wonderful feast of fun for everyone!
