More than a half-century and going strong, Art on the Green returns for its 53rd run after last year’s online celebration. Everyone’s happy to be back for the three-day arts fete, including more than 100 artists and more than 500 volunteers who make the event possible. Held on the shaded grounds of North Idaho College just west of downtown Coeur d’Alene, which is also hosting its annual summer Street Fair that same weekend (there’s a free shuttle between the two concurrent events), Art on the Green offers the chance to buy directly from local artists. Shoppers will find everything from wood- and leatherwork to art in glass, clay, fiber and paint. Kids can get crafty in a Children’s Art Garden, plus there’s food vendors to satisfy any craving and live entertainment all weekend.
Art on the Green • Fri, July 30 from 10:30 am-10 pm; Sat, July 31 from 10 am-10 pm; Sun, Aug. 1 from 10 am-4 pm • Free • North Idaho College • 1000 W. Garden Ave., Coeur d’Alene • artonthegreencda.com
