Art. Food. Music. This is clearly the greatest trifecta out of all trifectas.

Good news for you! You can find all three from July 13-15 at Downtown Plymouth’s annual event, Art in the Park, which was founded by the mother and daughter team of Dianne Quinn and Raychel Rork.

With over 400 artists from across the nation showcasing their work on the streets surrounding Kellogg Park, it’s hard NOT to buy something, even when you plan on just walking around. From painters to photographers to sculptors, you’re bound to find a new addition for your home.

The festival, which is on its 39th year, will run from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m.-7p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.-5p.m. on Sunday. Being that it’s likely to be hot, I recommend grabbing some of the classic, sugary-sweet fair lemonade to keep you cool. I mean, any excuse to buy one of those is a good one.

There will also be a plethora of vendors, serving up goods like ice cream and even homemade jams (which are totally my jam). I have no shame in admitting that my favorite part of Art in the Park every year is sampling these, whoops!

Keep calm and stay crafty,

Autumn.
