Watermark Art Center and Paul Bunyan Communications are pleased to present the 48th annual Art in the Park, held July 18-19 in downtown Bemidji’s Library Park. The juried fine arts and craft fair has been a summer highlight for Bemidji residents since 1967. This year’s vendors will be selling everything from wood and ceramics to clothing and jewelry. There will also be photography, metalworking, greeting cards, homemade preserves, food, candles, soaps, and more!

“We’re very excited for this year’s event,” said Watermark’s executive director Lori Forshee-Donnay. “We have some new vendors coming in, as well as some veteran favorites, all of which make the weekend a fun event for the whole family.”

Art in the Park is held in Library Park, just outside Watermark’s current location in the historic Carnegie Library on the shores of Lake Bemidji. The art fair features over 100 artists, a dozen food vendors, and live entertainment, boasting an annual attendance of over 4,000 visitors.
