The Fort St. John Community Arts Council, with the support of the City of Fort St. John, organizes the annual Art in the Park exhibition on July 1, as part of the Canada Day Celebrations at Centennial Park. Art in the Park showcases and celebrates the talent and diversity of local artists. Awareness and appreciation of the thriving arts community is central to the philosophy of Art in the Park.
First started in 2001, as part of the BC Festival of the Arts held in Fort St. John, Art in the Park inspires hands-on involvement in the arts. The event is enjoyed by the residents of Fort St. John at all age levels and is a highly popular part of the Canada Day Celebrations. Art in the Park consists of two programs: the Local Artists' Show and Sale and the Children's Art Activities.
The Artists' Show and Sale features the work of local artists and frequently include displays of pottery, stained glass, photography, candle-making, quilting, Spinning & Weaving, Doll Making, jewelry, Pastel Art, Oil Painting, Water Colour Painting, Sketching, Children’s Art from the local Fine Arts School, and Tactile Inspired Art, and more! The Children's Art Activities is where little ones can paste, paint and create mini-masterpieces. This hands on activity centre is a must-see attraction!
