Family Friendly @ Art on the Green

We are proud that Art on the Green is such a family friendly event! Kids can enjoy our Children's Art Garden where most art activities are provided free-of-charge (this year we have fairy wings, color burst capes and garden flowers - see the Art Garden for schedule). The Art Garden also features story times, music corner and juggling lessons. Free entertainment is provided on two stages all weekend, including music, theatre, entertainers, and youth performances. Art on the Green is stroller-friendly, or you can ride your bikes to the festival and park them in our free bike corral (bring your own bike lock). Also look for face painting, Pinot's Palette painting classes (where kids go home with a completed painting), and hand-made stuffed animals, all at family-friendly prices. Bring the whole family to Art on the Green at North Idaho College this weekend, August 3,4,5, 2018!
