July 17, 2015 marked the 3rd Annual Art in the Park event, an all-ages full-day event held in the heart of the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation at Shupick Park in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. This year’s event was attended by an estimated 300 people from near and far, and featured over 75 vendors who showcased a variety of handcrafted items, pottery, quilts, woodwork, jewelry, and paintings. In addition, there were approximately 20 food vendors that provided homemade tasty treats to attendees. Entertainment was provided by KJDJ Entertainment throughout the day, and there were several other activities that kept kids and families entertained, such as face painting, pony rides, and an archery expo.
The Annual Art in the Park is put on through a partnership between the City of Eagle Butte, the Cheyenne River Chamber of Commerce, and Four Bands Community Fund.
