Every year on the last weekend in July, Arts Picnic draws thousands to historic Lincoln Park. Festival attendees shop from over 150 artists’ booths selling everything from pottery and paintings, soap to sculptures and gourmet food to garden art!
Looking for a beautiful bracelet, perfect piece of pottery, or wonderful watercolor? Grab your hat, sunscreen, and shopping bag and head to the Arts Picnic where you’ll find high-quality one-of-a-kind handmade arts and crafts.Folks can take a break in the beer garden or enjoy mouth-watering cuisine from around the world including French, Greek, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Italian, plus good old American BBQ in the food court.
Creation Station’s kids’ hands-on area keeps the little ones busy with projects that encourage creativity and excite the imagination.
In addition to entertainers roving through the park all weekend, the two Arts Picnic stages will feature 20 of the best Colorado entertainers performing everything from Celtic rock to country swing and rhythm and blues to rock ‘n roll.
