The Arts are an important part of our business model at the Wild Hare; from the plates to the walls, every medium is explored and all artists encouraged.

We feature a new regional artist every month in conjunction with Bemidji's "First Friday Art Walk".  Opening receptions are held every first Friday of the month from 3-5pm.  The "First Friday Art Walk" is an excellent way to support the artists and businesses of Bemidji's beautiful Downtown, and to experience the wealth of creativity our community has to offer.


Hats by Mary have been a fixture here at the Hare from the beginning!  Her hand-made hats are functional and stylish; don't let a -20 below reading keep you from looking good!




Gorgeous and colorful silk always makes a great gift for loved ones or yourself!
