The Watermark’s annual Art in the Park has been a summer highlight for local residents and visitors from all over the country since 1967. This juried fine arts and craft fair located on the shores of Lake Bemidji in beautiful, tree lined Library Park boasts an annual attendance of over 4,000 visitors. Situated just north of the famous statues of Paul Bunyan, Babe the Blue Ox at the Tourist Information Center, Art in the Park features over 100 artists, a dozen food vendors, and live entertainment all within easy reach and walking distance to downtown Bemidji and all its amenities. You’ll find art galleries, live theatre, shopping, dining, plenty of parking and places to stay.
