Through our Arts in the City event series, we provide FREE all-ages concerts to the community every summer in the parks and in Downtown Minot! These events allow us to connect our neighbors with regional musicians, visual artists, artisan vendors, and businesses to develop and strengthen a culture of artistic enrichment and community engagement within the city of Minot. Join us for the fun this summer!

Thursdays Downtown are a FREE weekly celebration of local arts and music that take place on Main Street on
Thursday evenings June 8th, 2023 – August 3rd, 2023! Featuring live music, art demonstrations, activities for all ages (including bounce houses, axe throwing, and more!), food and beverage trucks, and handcraft vendors, these events have been steadily growing since their inception in the Summer of 2021!

Event Dates and Hours: Thursdays Downtown start at 5:30pm, live music begins around 6:00 pm and will run every Thursday June 8th through August 3, 2023.

Parking: Main Street will be closed for parking Thursday afternoons through event wrap up around 9:30 pm. Please utilize street parking along adjacent streets, or the downtown parking structures..

Sundays in the Park are the continuation of MACA’s 37-year legacy of providing weekly summer concerts in Minot’s
beautiful parks. In addition to featuring both established and up-and-coming local musicians, a Featured Artist attends each week to showcase their work and offer demonstrations. Concerts take place every Sunday at 4 pm and 7 pm June 4th through July 30th. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the park with us on Sundays!
