Arts in the Park

July 2, 2023
10:00am - 4:00pm
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.
