September brings turning leaves, cooler breezes and Art in the Park to the City of Trees.

Every year, a village of artists, artisans and food purveyors set up in Julia Davis Park and draw thousands to wander the grassy paths of Rembrandt Road to discover a wealth of creative expression and inventive design from booth to booth.

This Boise Art Museum fundraiser is a Treasure Valley tradition that’s now 59 years strong.

In 2013, you’ll find a mix of new and familiar faces among the nearly 260 artists who will show and sell their wares. With an increase of 30 from last year, this is close to a record. There are about 71 Idaho artists, and about 45 of those are from the Treasure Valley.

Whether you’re an early Christmas shopper or casual summer stroller, you’ll find a plethora of paintings and photography, toys and clothing, pottery and leather goods, musical instruments and jewelry, furniture, kitchen wares and more.

There are hands-on arts projects for kids in the Children’s Art Tent just north of the Memorial Rose Garden.

You also can enjoy music at the Gene Harris Bandshell each day and jazz in the wine garden in the Boise Art Museum sculpture court on Sept. 7.
