What began as a one-off market three years ago has blossomed into a state-wide artist collective that puts on a yearly festival at NewBo City Market and CSPS Hall in Cedar Rapids. Our festival differs from others in the state in a few ways. Most notably, we invite only artists from Iowa, and do not ask artists to submit applications with fees. As a result, visitors to our festival receive a curated experience, and when they support the artists, it goes right back into the local economy.
