Logan County Introduces New Arts in the Park Event

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN – The Logan County Alliance will host Arts in the Park in Latham Park on Saturday, July 18 and Sunday, July 19.

This event is the second spinoff of the expansion of the former Lincoln Art and Balloon Festival. The Logan County Chamber and Tourism Bureau created the event in response to numerous requests for a more adult-oriented experience. Arts in the Park will be similar to the former Art of Wine event with the addition of a traditional fine art fair.

The planning committee says six vendors will cater the wine tasting event, and craft beer tasting will also be available. No one under the age of 21 will be allowed in the wine tasting area unless they are accompanied by an adult. The wine area will be located on Pekin Street.

Events Coordinator Cara Barr explains they wanted to provide other options for guests who do not enjoy wine. A beverage center will set up to give attendees the option to buy soda, sports drinks or bottled water.

The Fine Art Fair will take place from 10 AM to 5 PM on July 18 and 10 AM to 4 PM on July 19.
