2021 ARTS PICNIC!

Saturday, July 24, 9am-5pm

Sunday, July 25, 10am-4pm

Lincoln Park:

802 10th Avenue

Greeley, CO 80631

The 42nd Annual Arts Picnic scheduled for July 24-25, 2021 and will be held in beautiful historic Lincoln Park in downtown Greeley, Colorado.  COVID may have kept us from gathering in 2020, but it will not take 2021 from us!  We look forward to another Arts Picnic and picking up where we left off.  With some social distancing, adherence to state-sanctioned, and CDC guidelines to protect our guests, vendors, entertainers, and staff, the Arts Picnic will be back and in full swing.

In 2019, over 150 artists/crafters and 20,000 “picnickers” from all over the United States attended this two-day event enjoying 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.  The former Kids Creation Station will be a ‘Take and Create’ for 2021, allowing mini-Monets and pint-size Picassos to create masterpieces outside of the Arts Picnic this year.  So mark your calendars for the 42nd annual Arts Picnic July 24 and 25 in downtown Lincoln Park.


Thank you in advance for your adherence to the outlined event guidelines and helping us create a safe space for all of our Arts Picnic visitors.

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 can be seen on TV featured on the Altitude Sports & Entertainment network, Fox Channel 31 and CBS News 4. www.Funkiphino.com
