FESTIVAL HISTORY 

The Thompson Valley Art League has been supporting and promoting artists and artisans since 1965. The first Art in the Park was held in 1966 at Dwayne Webster Park (Cannon Park) on the south side of Lake Loveland, and had less than 20 participating artists. This festival has grown into a two-day event featuring over 200 artisans.  


Art in the Park has emerged as an artisan event that draws people from all over the country. Art in the Park  takes place the same weekend as the internationally renowned Sculpture in the Park. These events, combined, draw over 30,000 people to Loveland.  

The Lincoln Gallery is the home of the Thompson Valley Art League. The art league can be reached at 970.663.2407 orlincolngallery@lincolngallery.com. The mailing address is PO Box 1055, Loveland, Colorado, 80539.

PARKING:
Handicapped parking areas are available near the entrances to Art in the Park. A valid handicapped parking permit is required to park in this area. Due to the limited parking at Art in the Park and the surrounding shows, we encourage our visitors to use the free shuttle bus service provided from various locations throughout Loveland.
Shuttle buses run regularly. They will be available to take people to all three art events happening simultaneously: Art in the Park at North Lake Park, Sculpture in the Park at Benson Park and Loveland Art and Wine Festival at Loveland High School. Shuttle hours are: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm on Sunday. The last shuttle bus to leave the shows will be at 7:00 pm on Saturday and at 5:30 pm on Sunday.
