Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
June 6 & 7
Stephens Lake Park
Deadline: February 9
The Columbia Art League is delighted to present the 57th Annual Art in the Park. First held in 1958, Art in the Park is the oldest and largest art festival in mid-Missouri. It is the highlight of the summer season in this arts-focused city, home of the University of Missouri and winner of the first ever Missouri Arts council's Creative Community Award in 2007.
The 2015 festival will be held at Stephens Lake Park, a historic tree-lined park set around the serene Stephens Lake. In support of the main event, Columbia's premier Fine Arts & Crafts Fair, the 2015 Art in the Park will include strolling entertainment for children, a children's art area, an Emerging Artist Pavilion
showing work by local high school and undergraduate students, a Young Collector's Tent, and a food court.
Columbia is easily accessible from Interstate 70 (east-west) and State Highway 63 (north-south). The festival grounds are just to the east of the downtown area with ample visitor parking provided courtesy of the adjacent Boone Hospital. Visitor shuttle buses are also provided.
Booth fees start from $255 for a mid-row booth or $285 for a corner.
Artist Amenities include:
If organizers of other shows would use you as a role model, we would have many better shows out there! You do so much advertising and listening to artists." Kris Clement, festival participant (ceramics), 2004-2014
