Submitted by Sheila Ganje, City of Eagle Butte Finance Officer
The City of Eagle Butte and the Four Bands Community Fund are co-sponsoring the first annual Art in the Park event to be held on Friday, July 19, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Shupick Park.
A 40’ x 100’ tent will be set up to accommodate the vendors and public alike. Each vendor will be provided with a banquet sized table and two chairs and electricity is available at the site if needed. The artisans shall be provided booth space at no charge and the admission is also free to the public.
Over four hundred letters have been issued to artisans from far and wide. Confirmations have been received from fifteen venders to include jewelry, woodwork, pottery, quilts, Native American arts and so much more. These commitments received do include several from food vendors such as Mexican, Native American and traditionally offered foods. We would like to encourage participation from more food vendors as well as other art forms, so contact us as soon possible.
Vendors are committing on a daily basis and therefore it is anticipated that a wonderful assortment of art forms for your entertainment and purchase shall be available. There will be a DJ providing music in an outdoor setting throughout the day as well as free face painting and so much more. Come prepared to spend the day at Art in the Park.
