The Brookings Summer Arts Festival brings more than 200 artists from across the nation, representing 15 disciplines of art. As many as 40+ gourmet and ethnic food booths satisfy every hungry appetite. Historic and antique booths celebrate South Dakota while the children's area provides fun and educational activities. The entire community gets involved in the festival as Pioneer Park is transformed into an outdoor gallery showcasing the very best of regional and national artists and skilled craftsmen.
The 2020 Brookings Summer Arts Festival has been canceled due to concerns over Covid-19.
With heavy hearts, the Brookings Summer Arts Festival Board of Directors has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Brookings Summer Arts Festival that was to be held July 11 & 12, 2020. Given the current recommendations concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, we have chosen to err on the side of safety and concern for our artists, vendors, entertainers, volunteers and committee. While we will not be together July 11 & 12, we look forward to our 50th anniversary celebration on July 10 & 11, 2021!
