Riverfront Fine Arts Festival


Riverfront Fine Arts Festival

Our Riverfront Fine Arts Festival began in the 1970’s! Currently, it takes place on the second weekend of September and runs in conjunction with the Defeat of Jesse James Days. Set along the idyllic Cannon River walkway, over 65 fine artists and craftspersons sell their work – ceramics, jewelry, paintings, fiber, wood and steel – there is something for everyone! We are looking forward to our 2018 festival, which will be held on September 8 & 9 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm both days – Rain or Shine!

Please visit our Application Page to apply, and see our Artist Page for more information on the exhibiting artists.


Thank you to all of the artists who shared their talents with us, and to the many volunteers who made our 2017 festival a success!
