BELFAST Arts in the Park has been a continuous presence in Belfast for 20 years. It made its debut in City Park in 1995, but after two years the organizers felt that Heritage Park, downtown on the waterfront, was a better venue, and it has been there ever since. This year again, during the weekend of July 11 and 12 (10 a.m to 4 p.m.), visitors and locals alike can stroll down Main Street to the harbor and find 80 artists and artisans, continuous live music and a fine array of food offerings. The festival is one more reason to visit the Midcoast and is the perfect environment to find one-of-a-kind gifts for friends, family or yourself.

Artist of the year Ron Cowan and his son, Ryan, will have their beautiful hand-carved Garden Muses in their usual spot looking out to the bay.

The Belfast Bay Fiddlers will kick off the show at 10 on Saturday followed by Aurora Jazz Project from 12-2, and ending up with the Leaky Boot Jug Band from 2-4. On Sunday morning Dave & Fran Plus will be under the tent from 10-12, followed by rockers People of Earth from 12-2, and bringing the show to a close the Down East Brass will entertain from 2-4.

The event is organized by Friends of Belfast Parks as a fundraiser for the parks. Over the years many improvements have been made thanks to funds raised to include the creation of Belfast's Dog Park!
