Now in our 53rd year, we are a well-established, beautifully run event hosting 120+ juried artists in 11 different types of media. In addition to the art, approximately 20,000 patrons enjoy live entertainment on the hour at two different stages, various local and charitable food stands, as well as a family art tent with hands-on projects and kid-friendly entertainment.
Additionally, there is a Young Collectors' Market and Scholarship Silent Auction which brings down even more potential buyers.
This highly acclaimed festival is held in Wausau's Downtown River District Shopping Center. Recently named one of Seven Wisconsin Cities With Can't-Miss Shopping Experiences by Travel Wisconsin.com, the street teems with shoppers and buyers!
We employ strategic advertising in a variety of media, including direct-mail, print, broadcast and online outlets, as well as public-relations and social-media campaigns. This year we are partnering with WPR to expand our advertising.
