Summer Arts in the Parks

Summer Performances

A collaboration between DWAC and Bismarck Parks & Recreation

Get out and visit Bismarck’s parks — you never know what you’ll find there.
​All programming is free and open to the public.

Kids Summer Stage in Custer Park begins June 15th and runs every Wednesday through August 17th from noon-1pm.
Kris Kitko with Kittyko Music and Education puts together a different show every week for kids, moms, dads, grandparents and more.
Bring a sack lunch, a blanket or chairs. Kris welcomes dogs, too!
Look for event updates on Dakota West Arts Council’s facebook page.
