Individual artists and artist collectives (new category) who wish to apply can access the application forms at www.kamloopsarts.ca, or call the Kamloops Arts Council office at 250-372-7323.
Art in the Park is organized by the Kamloops Arts Council as part of the City of Kamloops Canada Day celebrations at Riverside Park. The full day of arts exhibitions and sales, and musical, dance and theatre entertainment, is free to the public. Approximately 30,000 people attend the event each year.
Dozens of artists annually display and sell their handcrafted and original work, from painting and pottery to fashion and jewellery. Artist applications are approved by a selection committee to ensure quality of work is maintained.
