Watch for More Information Regarding 2023's Event!


The 43rd Annual Arts Picnic, scheduled for July 30 & 31, 2022, will be held in beautiful, historic Lincoln Park in downtown Greeley, Colorado. We look forward to another wonderful festival this summer and hope you can join us! 2021’s Arts Picnic was a huge success and showed us that the folks of Northern Colorado are willing and able to get outdoors and join the world again! Attendance is difficult to track, but we are pretty certain 2021 was our largest attended Arts Picnic to date! Cheers to making 2022 even better!

This two-day event features food booths, a beer garden, and live continuous entertainment on two stages. The Arts Picnic is a nationally known event with artists and crafters 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 will be featured on two stages throughout the weekend.

There will be free popcorn, additional visual entertainment and lots of family fun. You can also take advantage of downtown's Go Cup entertainment area!

Funkiphino, Colorado's funk sensation, pronounced “Funk-If-I-Know” is THE most requested group in the region. Influenced by Tower of Power, Chicago, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michael Jackson, Rhianna, Black Eyed Peas and Earth Wind & Fire, this 13-piece funk phenomenon infuses explosive horn lines, old-school Hammond organ sounds, and pumpin' bass with intoxicating vocal harmonies. Funkiphino’s excellence has earned them nominations and spots as Best Funk Band from Westword and Marquee Magazines and they've been featured on TV on the Altitude Sports & Entertainment network, Fox Channel 31, and CBS News 4.
