Each year on the 3rd weekend in June, Melgaard Park in Aberdeen is transformed from a typical city park to a shoppers delight of original, handmade arts and crafts, entertainment for all ages and the aroma of yummy food!
This is one of the very few outdoor art and craft Festivals that have been happening for over 40 years in our region of South Dakota.
One hundred thirty spaces are carefully marked off within Melgaard park and get filled with artists, crafters and food vendors from all over the country. In addition to the booths selling items, there is free entertainment featuring a variety of music genres that can be found through the weekend.
This two-day event is always held on the third weekend in June, which is typically Father's Day weekend.
