Marion is adjacent to Cedar Rapids in Eastern Iowa and draws a regional audience of 10,000, including patrons from the Iowa City-to-Cedar Falls I-380 corridor. The festival is an outdoor event, held in a vintage uptown-type city square park, and seated within a state-designated Iowa Great Place, Main Street Iowa District, Iowa Cultural and Entertainment District, and ArtPlace America-funded spaces.
There are no bands; there is no beer! The Marion Arts Festival is about the art. Among Art Fair SourceBook's "Elite 25" for 2017! Consistently named among Art Fair SourceBook's Top 50 shows! Our show is one-day, intimate, and purposeful. We're volunteer-driven, kind of hokey and maybe more than a little mom-and-pop ... in good ways, mostly. Always, we do the show for you. You're our whole point. Please think of us while planning your 2022 season!
