Get ready for a great 3-days at the 37th Festival in the Park (FIP).  Just below are a listing of events, booth/vendor map, and more.  


NEW!  The park is HUGE.  It gets tough carrying lots of little bags (and big bags).  Don’t be discouraged.  We now have a BAG CHECK service!  Stop by our Information Booth (next to the Band Shell) to check your bags.  We’ll give you a bag check ticket.  The cost is $1 a bag.  Hint: combine your bags into one to keep the cost down.

Give your Pet a break!Friendly reminder:  No PETS are allowed on park grounds throughout the event.  It is a city ordinance for these 3 days only.  If you bring a pet, you will be guided to the booth of the Western Hills Human Society who are providing pet sitting services for FREE.  However, there is limited space available.  Do yourself and your pet a favor…keep them at home.


FRIDAY, JULY 18 (our fundraising night, entrance with $5 wristband only)
We kick off this year’s FIP with our annual $5 wristband night on Friday, July 18.  Only those who enter the park wearing wristbands can help support the Arts in Spearfish for a very LOW PRICE, enjoy the cool evening hours, get first shot at shopping the vendor booths, and enjoying two great bands at the Watering Hole. 

  • Vendor booths open 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
  • Live music from 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
