Arts in the Parks
From mid-June through early August, this program offers something for all ages and interests in a relaxed outdoor setting. On Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons and evenings, the Minot Area Council of the Arts hosts musical and visual arts presentations.
Performances range from dance, theater and the big band sound to light opera, 50s and 60s hits, to gospel quartets and jazz! Each season brings a new variety of sights and sounds! Visual arts presentations have included rosemaling, sculpture, quilting, printmaking, watercolor and decorative painting, bobbin lace making, jewelry, and even cake decorating. (Of course, then the audience gets to eat the art!) Each season showcases special themed events including the City Band’s annual Sousa concert and audience favorites like “At the Hop”.
This annual program is a favorite summer pastime for thousands of area residents through the partnership of the Minot Area Council of the Arts, the City Band, the Minot Park District and the City of Minot along with the generosity of individuals, businesses and numerous in-kind donations
