Arts in the Park

Arts in the Park is a family-friendly community event that takes place every Tuesday evening in the months of June, July and August (with the exception of Tuesday, July 4th) at our beautiful Lakeside Memorial Park in downtown Forest Lake.  This community event features a variety of craft vendors, a farmer's market, food trucks and a weekly concert in the park.  Throughout the summer, we incorporate two evenings of kid friendly activities, a Nite2Unite celebration and our season finale with the FREE Community Corn Feed and performance by the Rockin' Hollywoods.    

We are no longer accepting vendor applications for the 2023 season. All spaces have been filled.
