Both events begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 4 p.m.
The juried art event has seen steady growth over the years. “Every year we have more artists and crafters apply. Patrons who come from Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Marshalltown, Cedar Rapids and all the surrounding communities and beyond often bring their gift list, buy accordingly and usually purchase items for themselves. Our patron crowd grows each year,” said Marion E. Boyer, art festival chairperson.
Music on Main will feature Kirk Eastman from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by The Deeves until 4 p.m. The Glampers will have their vintage campers on display. In addition, Brenda and Friends will offer children’s art activities from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., along with Rachel’s Photo Booth.
Kassi Nelson, an art teacher at Gladbrook-Reinbeck Community Schools, will have a display of student art on display. Sandra Peterson is sponsoring a Sidewalk Chalk contest with some of Nelson’s students. The Fountain on Main will host original poetry readings from noon to 3 p.m. featuring students from English teacher Angie Miller’s classroom.
