The Charles H. MacNider Art Museum is excited to announce that the 2020 MacNider Arts Festival and Outdoor Art Market will be online events this year. The online events will be on August 27, 28, and 29 starting at 5:30 pm daily.

The art projects the MacNider Arts Festival has become known for will be continued this year, but in a different way. Festival Kits will be available for pick up at the MacNider Art Museum and several other locations starting Aug. 24. There is no charge for the kits and project tutorial videos will be posted as part of the online content. Kits are first come, first served. Please take only what you need and leave the rest for others. Kits will also be located at: Clear Lake Public Library, Rockford Public Library, Rockwell Public Library, Manly Public Library, Nora Springs Town Hall, Mason City Public Library, and Mason City City Hall. Hours open vary by business, so you might want to call ahead for hours/kit availability before stopping by.

There will also be twelve Art Market artists sharing their fantastic work with you. Please look over their wonderful artwork and contact them for purchase if interested! Help support our artists!

As for additional entertainment we will have Joe & Vicki Price performing on Thursday, Kris Karr on Friday, and the Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre Company will put on “Little Red Riding Hood” for us on Saturday.
