Riverfront Fine Arts Festival

Our Riverfront Fine Arts Festival began in the 1970’s! Currently, it takes place in September and runs in conjunction with the Defeat of Jesse James Days.
2020 Festival Update
Every year, the Northfield Arts Guild presents the Riverfront Fine Arts Festival on the weekend after Labor Day along the idyllic banks of the Cannon River in downtown Northfield.  In 2020, we are excited to host this year’s festival online for the first time in our history. We recognize the importance of keeping this economic opportunity active for artists during a year where large, in-person gatherings aren’t possible. 

The Guild’s 2020 Virtual Riverfront Fine Arts Festival features a tremendous variety of local and regional artists offering their works for sale, accompanied by online artist interviews, art making demonstrations and studio tours. The artist shops on the Virtual Festival page will go live on Saturday, September 12. From this page, visitors and shoppers will be directed to the participating artists’ websites.

Thank you for being a friend of the Guild and understanding these decisions made during uncertain times. We wish for everyone’s continued health and look forward to your participation in this year’s 2020 Virtual Festival!
