Hosted by the Northern Life Museum & Cultural Centre the arts of Fort Smith were on display for all to see on a sunny day in mid-August.

The Art in the Park venue, located at the Mission Historic Park in Fort Smith, is sponsored by the department of Industry, Tourism and Investment for artists registered with NWT Arts to sell their arts and/or fine crafts. 

Welcomed in the morning by drummers, visitors browsed the wares of local artists, including jewelry, mugs, cake pops, stained glass, leathercrafts and smudging kits and more.

Folks were able to take part in the fun activities including a tie-dye workshop, Bouncy castle, music, face painting, and festival food were all.
