The 51st event is scheduled for Saturday, August 17th from 10am-4pm. Applications are now being accepted! Just clink the link below to find out more about this year's event and details about applying.

This festival fulfills an important role in the community and surrounding areas by supporting and celebrating local artists. Our goal is to make the arts accessible to all members of our community during this one-day, free event! 


Each year our committee works hard to make the event a success for exhibitors and shoppers. Area businesses and individuals interested in promoting and encouraging the arts help sponsor the event with financial contributions. Cash prizes are awarded to artists whose work is judged superior, and Art-a-fest bucks are awarded to lucky shoppers to purchase artwork.

With interactive arts activities for children, live performing artists, and delicious food from a variety of local and regional vendors, there is something for everyone to enjoy!

The event is located on the lawns of Central Park, in downtown Charles City, Iowa.
