ELKO — It is summer in Elko and that means it is time again for the arts and crafts event of the summer: Art in the Park.
This year’s free event is July 14-15, in Elko’s shady Main Park. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Elko’s largest art-based event in Main City Park offers some of the finest original works of art from all over the West, including California, Idaho, Utah, Montana and Arizona.
More than 60 artists, crafters, sculptors, painters and other vendors will be on hand, along with seven food vendors. Activities for kids, educational booths and live entertainment will also be available.
For over 30 years, Art in the Park has been presented by the Elko County Art Club. Proceeds from the event go to maintenance of the art gallery, college student art scholarships and the growth of the arts in Elko County. For more information, call 753-8170.
