Art in the Park in Appleton honoring founder, painter Phil Sealy | Pro Club Bd

APPLETON — Appleton’s annual Art at the Park returns Saturday for a weekend of arts, crafts, music, food vendors and family-friendly fun.

This year marks the 62nd annual Art at the Park. The event began in 1960 with just 15 local artists and around 200 participants, according to the Trout Museum of Art website. That same year, the Appleton Arts Guild — which later became the Trout Museum of Art — was formed. Now nearly 170 artists are presenting their work at the event, hosted by the Trout Museum, and attended by thousands of guests.

Art at the Park went from a one-day festival to a two-day event in 2021. This year’s festival will be held Saturdays from 9am to 6pm and Sundays from 9am to 4pm at City Park at 500 E. Franklin St. Admission and parking are free.
