Saturday July 20th, 2019 Marshalltown Art Festival, formerly, Linn Creek Art Festival. New Name, New Location, Same Amazing Art.
Slated for Saturday, July 21st, the Marshalltown Art Festival was cancelled due to devastating tornado damage at the festival site in downtown Marshalltown. The art community, volunteers, and planning committee are heartbroken by the storm’s severe impact on area businesses and residences. With a community focused on rebuilding and restoration, the Marshalltown Art Festival will return in 2019.
The event was previously known as the Linn Creek Arts Festival and utilized the Fisher Community Center grounds as its home for many years. The festival, led by the Marshall County Arts & Culture Alliance, made the decision in 2017 to re-brand the event in parallel with the growing focus on community pride, which led to a name change and ultimately the relocation of the event to the heart of our community, in Downtown Marshalltown. We couldn’t be more appreciative of the support from our donors, volunteers, local organizations and our Downtown businesses in the re-branding efforts and pre-festival planning for 2018.
Art has the power of healing. Art has the power of restoring. Art has the power of unifying. This is exactly what we intend to do with the 2019 Marshalltown Art Festival; continue to heal, restore and unify as a community! The Marshalltown Art Festival will come back strong on Saturday, July 20th, 2019 in Downtown Marshalltown. The theme “Marshalltown Strong” and the one-year anniversary of the day the community began to rebuild will be celebrated.
We encourage area businesses and organizations to contact us at email@example.com to collaborate with the 2019 festival planning committee, which promises to be a significant opportunity to demonstrate community pride and celebrate being Marshalltown Strong.
Artists and vendors interested in applying for the 2019 festival are invited to follow us on Facebook and on our website at www.marshalltownartfestival.org where specific details will be shared soon.
