This year will mark the seventeenth year for Belfast’s ARTS IN THE PARK, the two-day July arts and crafts festival that is one of the best outdoor arts events in Midcoast Maine. In addition to drawing hundreds and hundreds of visitors to Belfast, it is a much-anticipated event for local families and friends.
85 artists are there with their white tents filled with a huge variety of fine arts and crafts, ranging from paintings to photos, fiber and pottery, baskets, metalwork, jewelry and more.There is continuous live music under the tent both days, and in addition to ice cream and sweets, food vendors sell everything from felafel to wood-fired pizza to hotdogs.
Admission is free, but all monies raised from exhibitor fees, etc. go to support Belfast parks, via “Friends of Belfast Parks”
Bring the family, or friends, and plan to spend the day or the weekend.
