Art in the Park Red-Blue Flag

Art in the Park 2021 Status Announcement

July 17 – 18 2021

Based on the most recent Executive Order – EO 21-11 and Stay Safe MN Guidelines in relation to Covid-19, Watermark remains cautiously optimistic about our ability to host the 2021 Art in the Park Art Fair.

As we continue to develop our Outdoor Event – Covid Preparedness Plan, required for the event, we are working closely with the City of Bemidji, State of Minnesota, other event organizers and our public health professionals to provide you with the safest event possible.   

We are working closely with the City of Bemidji and the State of Minnesota to create our plan and hope to have answers for you in the coming weeks.

If you are an artist that was already approved for the 2020 event, WAC will be in touch with additional information soon.

We’ll keep you up-to-date on other events, education and programming right here or follow us on Facebook and Instagram. If you are on our AIP mailing list you will receive notification to keep you updated.


Art in the Park is held in Library Park, located next to Lake Bemidji, just across the street from Watermark’s current location at 505 Bemidji Ave N. The art fair features over 100 artists, a dozen food vendors, and live entertainment, boasting an annual attendance of over 4,000 visitors.

The juried fine arts and craft fair has been a summer highlight for Bemidji residents since 1967. Vendors sell everything from wood and ceramics to clothing and jewelry, photography, metalworking, greeting cards, homemade preserves, food, candles, soaps, and more!
