Many thanks to our Art Fest partners!


The Greater Grand Forks Convention & Visitors Bureau team had a great time supplying “simply grand” hospitality over the weekend to Art Fest artists and vendors!  Our group spends the weekend assisting with set up and tear down while also supplying snacks and beverages to the artists during both days of the event!
