The Cameron Park Farmers Market is a weekly community gathering place in La Crosse’s downtown. Throughout the season, locals and visitors to La Crosse come to support our local farmers and artisans, make healthy choices for their families, and to deepen their connection to the community around them. The combination of our weekly entertainment in the green-space setting of Cameron Park with our wide variety of quality local vendors, make Cameron Park Farmers Market a favorite activity, week after week.

Artspire’s Canstruction®-Lite Competition @ Online
Sep 15 – Oct 26 all-day

Artspire’s Canstruction® competition was postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19. Our mission for Canstruction® was two-fold: to create joyful art while helping to stock our local food pantries. We are continuing this mission with our Canstruction®-Lite competition.

This competition is open to individuals or small groups that can safely meet, including families, youth groups, class rooms, and businesses. Create your own food sculptures using canned and boxed foods, which are then donated to a local food pantry. The size, shape of the can, as well as the color of the can label all influence the design.

Get creative and have fun! Canstruction® projects develop skills in Art/Design, Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Brainstorming, Creativity, Construction, and Community Service.

Structures will be judged by a panel with awards for the following categories: Best MealStructural IngenuityBest Original DesignMost Cans, and Best Use of Labels.

All entries must be submitted online by October 26th.

Saturday Art Market @ Main Street Plaza
Sep 26 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

SATURDAYS AT THE MAIN STREET PLAZA!

Every Saturday through October 10th!
10 am to 3 pm

The Saturday Art Market is starting this weekend, August 8th, 2020 on the Main Street Plaza from 10 am to 3 pm. This opening weekend of the Market will feature artists who were planning to exhibit at Artspire. It is intended to offer local artisans an opportunity to share and sell their art. This event is in partnership with Downtown Mainstreet, the La Crosse Arts Initiative, and the Pump House. Most fairs and markets have been cancelled due to the pandemic, so these community partners are creating an opportunity to support our local artisans by helping them sell their art in a safe, outdoor, and socially distant manner. The Main Street Plaza is home to the Herons of La Crosse, and that naturally creates a social distance by allowing artists to set up between each sculpture. Masks will be required for participation in the Arts Market, and hand sanitizer available at the entrance to the market. The Saturday Art Market will take place each Saturday through October 10, 2020 dependent upon weather conditions and recommendations by the La Crosse County Health Department.
