Two upcoming events to offer local artists a chance to shine

June 15, 2013 by  

Now that summer is almost here, art fairs and outdoor festivals are taking place every month. Two such events in the St. Cloud area will give local artists a chance to showcase their works to the public this July.

Holdingford Daze is a two-day community festival. This year’s theme is ‘A salute to those who serve’. It will feature a classic and antique car show, a walkathon, a swap meet, and a farmers’ market. There will also be two parades, a street dance, and raffles. The event will end off with a fireworks display on the last night. In addition, there will be food to purchase and craft vendors will be selling such items as handmade jewelry, clothing, and artwork.

Holdingford Daze takes place from July 12 – 13 in downtown Holdingford.

Shortly after that, the 7th annual Art in the Gardens festival will take place at the Munsinger and Clemons Gardens. It will feature over 40 artists from all over the region who will be selling their original, handmade items. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase.

Both of these events will probably attract visitors from all over, including St. Cloud. Many of the vendors are likely to be investing in services like banner printing and sign printing to draw attention to their booths.

Art in the Gardens will take place on July 18 from 10:00 am – 8:00 pm. Admission is free. For more information, call 320-257-5959.
