Greetings from the 25th annual Marion Arts Festival, in Marion, Iowa! (Adjacent to Cedar Rapids, in East Central Iowa). Named by Art Fair SourceBook as being among the "Elite 100" for eight years running, and by Art Fair Insiders as among "America's 50 Best Art Fairs" and "America's Six Best Smaller Fairs" in 2015, 2014, and 2013, the MAF presents 50 artists, offering both fine art and fine craft to an audience of 10,000.
Marion is a "vintage uptown" type of community, and a part of the Cedar Rapids metro area. Our show is one-day, intimate and purposeful, with the mission to be an event through which you will thrive. (Here, we're obligated to insert that we're volunteer-driven, kind of hokey and maybe more than a little mom-and-pop ... in good ways, mostly.) There are no bands, there is no beer ... our festival is about the art. (However, we do cop to falafel.)
