Watford City Art In The Park Seeking Artists, Crafters, Food Vendors July 13

The Long X Arts Foundation is hosting Art in the Park at the Watford City Tourist Park on Saturday, July 13 from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. 

This family-friendly event has become a community tradition that features booths and shopping by local artists and crafters, food by McKenzie County Parks and Recreation, free art activities for the kids, face painting, a talent show, a baby pageant, and quality entertainment by nationally touring Juggler, Acrobat and Aerialist, Laura Ernst. This year, for the first time ever, the event will also host two foam parties that families can enjoy for free!

In addition to activities and shopping at the Tourist Park, artists and makers will also be set up in the Gallery of First International Bank and Trust on Main Street during the day.

 Beaver Creek Kids will be hosting the ever-popular Baby Pageant at 11 a.m. to help kick off the event. Enter your 0-23-month-olds for prizes for a $10 registration fee. 

"This is always such a fun way to celebrate our young community. The families really get creative and every baby gets a prize!"

At 2 p.m., Long X Arts will host the Homefest Talent Contest on the Tourist Park stage sponsored by the Watford City Area Chamber of Commerce. Participants can enter in four different age groups: Kids-0-8, Youth-9-12, Teen-13-18 and Adult 19 +. Prizes will be awarded to all and the top winner in each age category will be chosen to perform at Ribfest on Aug. 9.

"The best part of this event is that there is creativity and activity around every corner," said Long X Arts Foundation Director Jessie Scofield. "The Tourist Park is a beautiful, shady space to enjoy the day with the family, complete with a playground for the kids. The day will be full of fun ways to interact with your neighbors and the gallery show on Main Street is just another reason to head up town to shop before enjoying the street dance on Saturday."

In order to make this event a success, Long X Arts is seeking artists, makers, crafters and food vendors who are interested in showing and selling their work. Registration is also open now for the Baby Pageant and the Talent Contest.
