For 40 years, the Springfield Regional Arts Council, along with the Downtown Springfield Association, has celebrated the arts and the coming of spring with Artsfest on Historic Walnut Street at the beginning of May. However, in light of the continued bans, due to public health and safety concerns, on large gatherings in our community through mid-May, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone Artsfest 2020.
Artsfest makes art essential to the lives of those living in the Southwest Missouri by showcasing talented artists and their creativity in a community-centric festival. Forty years strong, this outdoor event hosts over 120 artists on the beautiful Historic Walnut Street in Springfield, Missouri.
Artsfest is returning to Historic Walnut Street May 1 & 2, 2021! Once again, we’ll be relying on a team of wonderful volunteers to truly make this festival possible.
Limited capacity means a limited amount of tickets will be available for the 40th Artsfest on Historic Walnut Street, May 1 & 2. Want to go?
