Marion, Iowa, is a "vintage uptown" type of community, and a part of the Cedar Rapids metro area. Our show is regional, 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, admittedly hokey and maybe a more than a little mom-and-pop). There are no bands, there is no beer...our fesival is about the art (we do, however, cop to felafel).
We're one of the most artist-profitable festivals in he country! The 2011 Art Fair Source Book ranks the Marion Arts Festival: #1 in the country among one-day events featuring 100 or fewer artists; #51 overall in fine art; #59 overall in fine craft.
