We are a member-driven volunteer organization made up of women from all over Laurel and Jones County.
Founded in November of 1969, this organization of dedicated women provides its community with support for art departments at local public and private schools, scholarships, a children's art contest, and Day in the Park, a large arts festival. We also assist Laurel Rogers Museum of Art with various programs including the Very Special Arts Festival and the Heritage Arts Festival.
Day in the Park is Laurel Arts League's largest annual event, which takes place the first Saturday of May each year in Mason Memorial Park. The day begins with a 5K race, followed by a fun run. Throughout the day, patrons can enjoy live music, student and juried art competitions, delicious festival cuisine, children's activities and the works of many skilled artisans and craftspeople.
The mission of the Laurel Arts League is to support and celebrate the visual and performing arts through public education and events in the city of Laurel, Mississippi.
The Laurel Arts League is a non-profit organization and maintains 501(c)(3) status.
