The Festival

A marketplace, performance space and a gathering place for friends and families, this yearly event is the highlight of summer in Coeur d'Alene. This summer, 190-plus artists, a variety of performers and over 500 volunteers will come together to present Art on the Green for more than 50,000 people to enjoy.

Art on the Green is a great place to buy handcrafted works in glass, clay, leather, wood, metal and fiber directly from the artists. Or if you prefer, create your own special art in our hands-on-art area for children - materials and instruction provided. Enjoy our food selections - old favorites and new additions (food booths at the festival are run by wonderfully dedicated volunteers and the proceeds help to pay for the free entertainment offered all weekend long). Plan to join in the celebration of art, creativity and friendship at Art on the Green. Free shuttle bus between the festival and downtown Coeur d'Alene.

Art on the Green is an arts and crafts outdoor festival sponsored by Citizens' Council for the Arts, a non-profit corporation of interested volunteers formed to encourage and promote the arts. Fees and commissions help to pay the costs of the festival. Active participation by all interested members of the community is invited and encouraged. Volunteer today!



The CCA is a member of the Coeur d'Alene Chamber of Commerce and the Coeur d'Alene Art & Culture Alliance. 

Citizens' Council for the Arts

The Citizens Council for the Arts (CCA) is a nonprofit group formed to encourage, promote, and support the arts in our community.

In addition to creating, producing and supporting Art on the Green, the CCA sponsors community art projects such as ArtShop at Children's Village and the Aspiring Artists Club at North Idaho College. We also make annual donations of art work to North Idaho College, public buildings, and local schools.
