Saturday July 21st, 2018 Marshalltown Art Festival, formerly, Linn Creek Art Festival. New Name, New Location, Same Amazing Art.
Say goodbye to the old, and hello to the new! Formerly known as the Linn Creek Arts Festival, we are excited to announce the newly re-branded event, the Marshalltown Art Festival. In 2018 we will be changing locations from the Fisher Community Center and moving to the heart of the community, Downtown Marshalltown. In an effort to support our growing community, the committee, along with the Marshall County Arts & Culture Alliance, felt a strong need to brand the community of Marshalltown alongside one of its most popular events, the Linn Creek Arts Festival. In conjunction with Vision Marshalltown, we believe the annual art Festival conveys a sense of community pride. To continue the movement of labeling Marshalltown as THE place to live, work and play, we wanted to be sure attendees who are traveling to the community for the Festival leave remembering where they were with a reason to come back. It is the planning committee’s primary goal, moving forward, to host the highest quality art Festival in Iowa and showcase the many wonderful offerings of Marshalltown.
Marshalltown Art Festival is a day long art experience. Start your day with signing up for a raffle ticket, buy some unique art, catch a live show, see more artists and their stunning work, eat lunch downtown, buy some more art and catch one last show before heading home with your treasures. The Marshalltown Art Festival is the place to find your next piece for the home. Check out a video from the 2017 Festival.
