2024 Indianola Summer Art Festival

The 2024 Call for Artists Application is now available!

The Indianola Public Arts Commission along with The National Balloon Classic, The Warren County Fair and Indianola Hometown Pride are bringing back our annual art festival in conjunction with the Celebrate Warren County Parade.

The two-day art festival will take place in Indianola’s historic Buxton Park on Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28 from 10 AM - 4 PM. This is the start of the National Balloon Classic plus the fourth day of the Warren County Fair, so artists can expect Indianola to be bustling with tourists, balloons, music and food!

In addition to over 30 artists, visitors can enjoy live music entertainment from singers, flutists, and pianists, yard games, food trucks, and other activities.

The application, along with jury items should be submitted no later than April 1, 2024. All artists new to our event will be juried. Artists who were juried and displayed last year are not required to be juried. Jury items (photos of your work) plus one booth photo and your application must be submitted by email to arts@indianolaiowa.gov or mailed to The Indianola Summer Art Festival, Indianola City Hall, 110 N. 1st St., Indianola, IA 50125. Emailed photos cannot be larger than 5 MB (photos will NOT be returned). The Indianola Summer Art Festival reserves the right to remove any items from the show that do not meet jury expectations. If approved, (you will be notified by April 15) pay the non-refundable booth registration fee: $75 Booth Fee by May 1, 2024.
