Artists Pack Bismarck's Capitol Grounds

About 130 artists from around the country packed Bismarck's Capitol grounds today for the annual Capitol A'Fair.

This is the festival's 41st year and is one of the largest summer festivals in the region. In addition to the wide variety of artisans, there's also live music, food, performing arts groups and children's activities.

The affair's proceeds go towards the Bismarck Art and Gallery's Association, a non-profit visual arts center.

"I think it's really important that we have this in the city because it's great for the talent to be shown and just for families to come see it and just have that sense of community in Bismarck. I would encourage someone to come here," said Kaitlyn Olson, event attendee. "It's just really fun to see all the different things that you can buy and just all the community that's here and all the good food. So, it's a good way to spend a nice day."

If you didn't get a chance to catch the affair today, don't worry. The artists will be back tomorrow from 10 a.m. until 4 in the afternoon.
