Arts in the Park 2023 – This year’s event will take place on July 2nd, 2023 from 10am – 4pm
Every year Brainerd Community Action gathers hundreds of artists and vendors in beautiful Gregory Park in the heart of the city of Brainerd for what has become the area’s leading arts fair of the summer. This free to attend event is the perfect way to spend an afternoon supporting the arts and taking in all the park has to offer. Areas with thriving artist communities often see higher levels of innovation with fresh ideas on everything from beautification efforts to better ways of using public spaces. Brainerd Community Action is proud to support those amongst us who wish to help change the way we live, and Arts in the Park is a celebration of those artists and creators. Not only is this free to attend event a great way to get out and support local artists, but over the years Arts in the Park has also become the biggest fundraiser of the year from Brainerd Community Action as a whole. In recent years, we have also created the Community Corner portion of this event to allow non-profit groups a place to share their message with the community as well.
