Arts in the Parks

Arts in the Parks is a family-oriented initiative that highlights the scenic attributes of Alaska’s beautiful State Park system. With 157 park units totaling more than 3 million acres, Alaska State Parks provide visitors with unparalleled year-round opportunities to explore a wide variety of recreational, historical, and cultural experiences. One of the primary objectives of this art-based program is to bring a creative focus to the outdoors by hosting events in park units throughout the state. Events are open to the public and include art-themed activities for children and adults. Stay tuned for information about our 2019/2020 events.
