The 22nd Annual Eagan Art Festival
Eagan Art Festival, June 25 & 26, 2016
A juried art show of 100 artists, this free art festival is one of the premier events offered south of the river! Located at Central Park in Eagan, just minutes off interstates 35E and 494, the festival is easy to access with ample parking for all.
What’s Your Story? This is the theme for the 2016 Art Festival. Everyone has a story to tell, at this year’s festival you will have a chance to share a story with our community by creating a beautiful illuminated letter and message in the Art Experience Tent. Check out the “Story Stations” located throughout the site. Bring a new or gently used fiction, non-fiction, or children’s book and donate it to the Eagan Rotary’s Little Library Program. “What’s Your Story” creations will be exhibited in the Eagan Community Center this summer. Be sure to stop by and check out the art!
