Types of Artwork

Organized and sponsored by the Amana Arts Guild, the artisans that display at the Festival of the Arts sell only handmade items, and are encouraged to demonstrate their art for festival-goers. With a blend of local and regional artists, visitors can expect to find both modern forms of art, as well as local art created in the traditional Amana way. Vendors will showcase a wide variety of items including paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, tinware, baskets, rugs, and much more.

Food

The Festival of the Arts hosts food trucks offering sandwiches, salads, pizza, and more. Iced teas and other beverages will be available from the Rusty Tractor’s beverage trailer.

Kid’s Activities

Kids will have plenty to create and learn in the free Children’s Corner.
