Artists invited to submit button designs

February 23, 2017
    The Park Rapids Downtown Business Association (PRDBA) is sponsoring a 2nd Street Stage button design contest with a $250 cash prize to the winner.
    Those who purchase and wear the $20 buttons for this season’s ten 2nd Street Stage events June 15 through Aug. 17 will be helping to sponsor this fun summer event and will receive a free stadium cup or koozie at the beer garden. Five hundred buttons will be made and available for purchase this spring and at the beer garden.
    Please draw your design within a 4-inch circle. Designs must include “2017,” “2nd St Stage” and “Park Rapids, MN.” They may be full color or black and white with color accents. Please remember this is a fun, summer, live music event. Deadline for submissions is March 31.
    Designs may be submitted on paper to the Park Rapids Downtown Business Association, P.O. Box 142, Park Rapids, MN 56470 or digitally as a pdf or jpg e-mailed to
    It is the PRDBA’s intent to continue the button design contest annually and create buttons that will become collectibles.
    This season’s 2nd Street Stage band schedule is set and is posted on Facebook at 2nd St Stage. New this year, the beer garden will open for a social hour before the concerts while people arrive, the bands set up and do sound checks, etc.
