The Hudson Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau in partnership with The Phipps Center for the Arts invites you to be inspired by fine art, live music, and fall flavors in Lakefront Park on the scenic St. Croix River. The Spirit of the St. Croix Art Festival draws thousands of visitors to experience a variety of creative talent. This year the festival offers even more art in the park, with over 80 juried artists showing their best work – glass, wood, pottery, photography, jewelry, fiber, acrylics, oil, watercolor, metal, and more – to stimulate your creative side.
Enjoy live demonstrations by participating artists, including weaving, glass bead making, and raku-fired pottery. Also, everyone is encouraged to explore their creativity with a variety of free hands-on art activities. Adding to the festivities, enjoy street performers, including a living statue, a hula-hoop rodeo, and a tasting tent featuring a local winery and brewery. Tap your toes to live music by Good Time Willy and The Barley Jacks with Brian Wicklund, to name a couple of the amazing entertainers.
Pets are welcome to enjoy the Doggie Daycare, chaperoned by Angel’s Pet World.
Admission is free. No coolers or bikes will be allowed in the park.
