  • Art on the Green returns for its 45th year in Coeur d\'Alene.

If you missed out on Spokane’s ArtFest, you’ve got another chance to meet some of the region’s most renowned visual artists in person, ask them about their craft, or even send your kids to weeklong ArtShop classes for visual and performing arts. From art to entertainment, food, wine, and activities for the kids, the Art on the Green Festival in Coeur d’Alene is an long-standing artistic tradition. Going on its 45th year — it was once the simple Coeur d’Alene Art Festival held on North Idaho College’s tennis courts — the festival hosts more than 50,000 visitors each year at NIC.

Kids also have the chance to get creative with free activities like pottery, painting, and live readings at the Poetry Wall, where they can recite their own verses or submit them for others to perform. 

This year, the festival honors one of its most treasured artists, Denny Young, who passed away in December. At his posthumous booth, you can check out the pottery that made him a beloved artist in the region.

In the name of art and summer, pig out on treats like grilled salmon, corn on the cob, stir-fry, ice cream, and lemonade. Adults can check out the wine and beer garden.

And while the signature 100-foot tent will harbor a more expensive gallery of photography, paintings, and sculptures for purchase, the festival features a Clothesline Sale offering more affordable works ranging between $10 and $75.
