Art on the Red (formerly Grand Cities Art Fest) takes place in downtown Grand Forks on the banks of the Red River on the second full weekend of June. Hosting artists and artisans, food vendors and entertainers, Art on the Red caters to art lovers and festival-goers from around the region with two full days of art, food, kids' activities and art projects, live entertainment and more
This year, Art on the Red will take place on June 8th and 9th at University Park. Due to the construction of Demers Avenue, the decision was made to move Art on the Red to a new location to ensure that our artists, vendors, and guests will have an enjoyable experience. Visitors can still expect the best quality entertainment and art, not to mention a variety of delicious foods and beverages.
