Summer Adventures

The Lake City is all about playing outdoors during long summer days. Boats, paddleboards, jet skis, kayaks and flyboards are all available to rent. Take a dinner or sightseeing cruise offered by the Coeur d’Alene Resort, or just relax at City Beach or Sanders Beach. Farmers markets run weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and you can cheer on athletes from around the world as they attempt both a half and full-ironman. Art on the Green covers the North Idaho College campus with all kinds of regional artists, and the Coeur d’Alene Summer Theater brings professional actors in for its shows. Enjoy dinner and drinks on patios all over town.

Art on the Green and Street Fair

This cherished, annual Coeur d’Alene event happening in August is held exclusively at the old Fort Sherman Grounds on the North Idaho College Campus, just a stone’s throw from downtown Coeur d’Alene and City Park where the Street Fair is held. It is a marketplace, performance space and a gathering place for friends and families; this yearly event is truly the highlight of the summer in Coeur d'Alene and a paradigm of synergy between the arts and community. Unique from the other events that simultaneously take place downtown, Art on the Green is dedicated to work imbibed with the empathy that only the hand-made object can achieve; when you bring home work from Art on the Green it’s as if you take a piece of the artist with you. Art on the Green is committed to supporting artists by giving them an opportunity support themselves through their craft. It is the prime place to buy handcrafted works in glass, clay, leather, wood, metal and fiber. Art on the Green features 135-plus artists, a variety of amazing regional performers and over 500 volunteers. More than 50,000 people enjoy this lively festival each year. Feeling creative?
