Event Summary
Art on the Green invites artists to apply for our 52nd annual festival August 2, 3, and 4,  2019

Art on the Green is located on Lake Coeur d'Alene, on the beautiful campus of North Idaho College. We are attended by over 50,000 people and produced by over 500 volunteers. All entry fees and commissions are used to pay for the juried show prizes, art classes for children and adults, art awards to local schools, free entertainment, and expenses for the festival.

Citizens’ Council for the Arts maintains a festival of the highest reputation and quality, which is a credit to our community, to the Council and its volunteers, and to all participating artists. The festival gathers friends and families for a celebration of life and the arts. Our festival features specialty food booths with offerings ranging from our  traditional sausages & sauerkraut,  grilled chicken, fresh corn on the cob, ice cream, pizza, and a large beer & wine garden with local brewery and cider house offerings on-tap. We feature a Children's Art Garden, with painting and special art activities for children. We offer entertainment on two stages, featuring exciting regional and national musicians of multiple genres. We  value the highest quality of fine art offered by our booth artists, and hope you will be a part of our 2019 Festival!
