80 Artists
Deadline: May 12

The site of the festival, Fourth Street from Lincoln Street to Indiana Avenue, is a pleasant tree-lined area close to both the Indiana University campus and downtown Bloomington. Over the years the festival has steadily increased in popularity and quality of works, drawing a crowd of 25,000- 35,000 art-savvy patrons over the two-day period. Forty five years ago a group of area artists and craftspeople created the Fourth Street Festival as a rigorously juried art event that would be mutually beneficial to the exhibitors and the community. This show is truly run by artists, for artists. Submissions are juried on-line independent peer jury.

Bloomington PosterIf the show should be cancelled due to the Covid-19 virus, any artists who have paid their booth fees will receive a full refund for your booth fee. Since we are unsure how a vaccine will affect the world by Sept 2021, we are planning for a Covid-sensitive show with a reduced number of booths. However, we will maintain a larger waitlist, in case we find ourselves able to safely add more artists.
