Summer In The Parks



FREE Arts Activities

FUN for Kids!

June 15 – August 13


The Grand is pleased to announce the return of Wilmington's Summer in the Parks. Last year, we presented 330 individual artists in 96 events, serving over 4900 residents throughout the city with FREE arts activities. Now, with the continued support of the City of Wilmington, we are planning for even more FUN with the ARTS, presenting 9 weeks of special events and activities from June 15 through August 13, 2015… Look for us in YOUR neighborhood!


Calling All Artists… The Grand is now accepting proposals for your arts activities to be part of the FUN! Download and complete our RFP. The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 13 at 5 PM. Please feel free to share this with any artists you know!
