The 2015 Iowa Arts Festival, presented by Veridian Credit Union has some exciting changes planned for this year!
First, the festival layout will be a little different than past years with the biggest change being the addition of Clinton Street to the festival grounds. We will be moving the Main Stage from Dubuque Street to Clinton Street (still facing South) to allow for a better viewing opportunity for our audience on the wider street.
The Art Fair is also spreading out a little bit and will wind its way from Clinton Street onto Washington Street, Linn Street, Iowa Avenue and Dubuque Street. You can still expect to see over 115 fine artists, but there will be more room for walking and viewing! This also allows a great opportunity for more visibility of the fabulous downtown businesses!
Another change is the addition of a "Street Stage" which will be located at the corner of Iowa Avenue and Linn Street. We'll feature a wide variety of local performers from all different areas of the arts each day of the festival.
Watch for more information and the complete schedule in the very near future!
