MacNider Arts Festival


NEW DATE: MacNider Arts Festival is Sunday, August 30, 2020!

The MacNider Art Museum has determined that for the health and safety of our guests, artists, and volunteers, the MacNider Art Museum is postponing its annual Arts Festival until Sun., August 30. The Museum hopes to have at that time a summer arts celebration. The Museum will continue to closely monitor state and CDC guidelines related to COVID-19 and will adapt the event as needed.

Festival may look different than years past due to new guidelines but will have the same community art spirit! Details surrounding the event will be forthcoming as guidelines are developed related to crowds during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Outdoor Art Market will be open from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. with many fine artists and crafts persons.  This is a wonderful opportunity to meet amazingly talented artists, buy local & support art!

More than 150 area citizens are recruited to volunteer during Festival.  If you are interested in volunteering during part of this event, contact the Museum at 641-421-3666.
