Iowa Arts Festival

June 2 @ 5:00 pm - June 4 @ 5:00 pm


The Iowa Arts Festival is an award-winning, weekend-long community celebration featuring over 100 local and national visual artists. On Saturday and Sunday, we feature high school and college artists in the Emerging Artist Area. But that’s not all: there are music performances, food vendors, and creative, educational activities and entertainment for children. The Iowa Arts Festival is the most anticipated art event of the summer!
