Be a part of one of the most profitable shows in the country! Consistently named among the top tier of fine art and fine craft events nationwide, the Marion Arts Festival presents 50 nationally sourced artists, offering both fine art and fine craft to an audience of 14,000 patrons.
Marion is a "vintage uptown" type of community, and a part of the Cedar Rapids metro area in Eastern Iowa. Our event is one-day, intimate and purpose-driven, and our exhibitors enjoy a sincere welcome and an easy-to-do show. There are no bands, there is no beer - the MAF is about the art.
