Celebrate Art! Celebrate Coffee!

Outdoor Festival in downtown Willmar, Minnesota

Saturday September 16, 2017

This is the 20th year for our festival so we plan to make it extra special.  We will be hosting a reception Friday evening, Sept 15, honoring past poster artists.  The public is encouraged to attend. 
In addition to the entertainment, the festival will feature a juried art show and sale, artists' demonstrations, free hands-on make and take activities for kids both big and small, a food court, and, of course, free coffee all day! 
New this year: 
Free canvas tote with our new logo to the first 1,500 people!
Free photo booth in Bethel Church lobby - take home a souvenir photo!
Register for one of four door prizes - tote bags stuffed with goodies!  There's one for kids, college kids, a health and wellness bag and a general bag will with hundreds of dollars of items!
A chance to win $100 by submitting a selfie or picture of the event taken between 10:00 and 3:00 to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag  #CelebrateArt 17

 In case of rain all activities will be moved to Kennedy School.


This activity is made possible in part by a grant from the SW MN Arts & Humanities Council through an appropriation from the MN State Legislature with money from the state's general fund.

This activity is also funded in part by a grant from the Willmar Area Community Foundation and our sponsors.
