Arts in the Park began in 2021 and was a huge hit!  It is a half day event at our Granite Lake Park. We plan to make Arts in the Park an annual event. There are many forms of art, and we hope to have representation of them all! This event is a venue for local students to display/show their art (painting, architecture, sculpture, literature, music, performing and cinema). There will be a children’s area to create a take home art piece as well as much more. This event will also be open to vendors/artisans selling handcrafted items. We will also offer attendees the opportunity to purchase food and drink from area vendors. Arts in the Park is held each year on the weekend prior to Mother’s Day weekend.

Granite Fest is a festival for the community and surrounding area of Granite Quarry with free admission. This event was originally started to celebrate the town’s centennial and was such a success, it was continued for several years. We have brought that festival back after a short hiatus and hope it will continue to entertain and bring exceptional joy to all who attend.

The Town of Granite Quarry relies on a partnership with our generous sponsors to assist us in providing our attendees with quality entertainment, exciting games and inflatables for the kids, and an opportunity for the community to gather and celebrate our town. Granite Fest is held at our Civic Park and includes a craft fair, live music, dancing, inflatable amusement, games, lots of great food and various other entertainment. Granite Fest is held each year on the third Saturday of October.
