Artfest, The Other Show


  • Iowa State Fairgrounds (map)

Explore the 13th annual juried fine art event, ArtFest Midwest ‘The Other Art Show’.  ArtFest Midwest is held the same weekend as the Des Moines Arts Festival and will feature Iowa and regional artists. Over 240 artists will be participating. This year, approximately 40% are from Iowa, and 70% of all show artists are from the Midwest! ArtFest Midwest is offered as an alternative, affordable art show — a complement to the downtown show. The show will reflect quality similar to that found at the original “Art in the Park” show held several years ago at the Des Moines Art Center (then moved to the Fairgrounds).  In addition to exposure to local and regional artists, patrons will enjoy the opportunity to browse through approximately 240 booths of affordable art in air-conditioned comfort.
