One of Boise’s most popular cultural events is only a month away.
The 65th annual Art in the Park is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 6-7 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 8 in Julia Davis Park, 700 S. Capitol Blvd., Boise.
Held each September on the weekend following Labor Day, the open-air festival provides an opportunity for visitors to meet and purchase works from more than 200 artists.
In addition to arts and crafts, there are food vendors and children’s activities, which makes it ideal for families.
It’s undoubtedly a Treasure Valley tradition (the crowds don’t lie) and wouldn’t run nearly as smoothly without the community’s help.
For those interested in lending a hand, the Boise Art Museum is welcoming volunteers 14 and older, although some assignments are for 18 and older.
Positions are available in a variety of areas — from Welcome Center staff to helping with event setup and take-down — and during a range of times to accommodate everyone’s schedules. To review a list of positions still in need of volunteers, click the Sign Up Today button at boiseartmuseum.org/art-in-the-park.
For questions regarding signup, email Leslie Elgin, Boise Art Museum Art in the Park coordinator, at email@example.com, or call 208-345-8330, ext. 114.
