Five Decades of Culture
Festival of the Arts celebrates 51 years in 2020! Held annually on the first weekend in June, we host a free, three-day community event that celebrates every discipline of the arts; dance, music, literature & media, visual arts, and design. We welcome everyone to attend and experience the rich artistic talent our region offers. Being a regional arts event, Festival of the Arts, represents eight counties including Kent, Ottawa, Ionia, Allegan, Muskegon, Mountcalm, Barry, and Newago. Every performance, exhibition, and children’s creative activity remains free for all.Harness the power of the wind during Festival of the Arts! Join us in the Pocket Park located near Wege Plaza to make a pinwheel from recycled paper and send it spinning during this free event.
