Festivals and Events

Arts Picnic

Arts Picnic LogoArts Picnic, held the last weekend in July, draws thousands to historic Lincoln Park every year. Festival attendees shop from over 150 artists’ booths selling everything from pottery and paintings, soap to sculptures, and gourmet food to garden art! Folks can take a break in the beer garden or enjoy mouth-watering cuisine from around the world including French, Greek, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Italian, plus good old American BBQ in the food court. Colorado performers entertain on two stages throughout the weekend while clowns, magicians and balloon artists rove through the park. The Creation Station's kids’ hands-on area keeps the little-ones busy with projects that encourage creativity and excite the imagination. The Arts Picnic is truly a feast of fun for everyone!

Neighborhood Nights

Neighborhood Nights LogoSince Neighborhood Night’s creation in 1996, one of Greeley’s most fun (and free!) summertime rituals is for folks to head to beautiful parks throughout the community, stake out a patch of grass with their lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy a wonderful movie shown on an inflatable screen. These alfresco theaters bring back memories of drive-ins that baby boomers grew up with gathering people from all walks of life. So why spend another Friday night in front of the TV when you can be outside enjoying a balmy Colorado evening with friends and family watching a favorite flick under the stars?
