The 20th Anniversary Eagan Art Festival
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.
New this year. The Eagan Art Festival chose community artist Seth Eberle to lead the 20th Anniversary Community Art Project. Seth has created the project “Faces of Celebration”. He will be casting masks for the community to paint in a growing mask sculpture over the weekend. Our visitors will also work with Seth to create a large mask which will then be covered by “celebration selfies” taken by our visitors and the community. Are you celebrating an event? Take a selfie and upload it to the Facebook Site “Faces of Celebration!” Join us to Celebrate Art & Community as we create ”Faces of Celebration” on June 28th & 29th!
Enjoy a variety of fine art. The Eagan Art Festival offers exceptional art in all media available for purchase directly from the artists.
Be dazzled by top-notch entertainment. Each year brings a broad spectrum of performers from around the state. Come and celebrate Art and Nature with Tricia And The Toonies’ Environmental Show, plus Jazz, Brass, and much more!
Have fun! Kids will love creating art in the Children’s Activities Tent. See an artist demonstration and get creative with the annual community art project in the Art Experience tent.
Savor the selection of tasty treats. Choose from corn dogs, gyros, ice cream and other traditional fare in a family-friendly venue. Enjoy your food selections at a picnic table or in the entertainment tent.
Get involved. Join the festival as a sponsor or volunteer and be a part of an unforgettable weekend. Dedicated sponsors keep the festival growing and free! Just a few hours of commitment from each of our volunteers goes a long way to making this event special for artists and visitors!
