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 will be the theme for the 2016 Art Festival.  Everyone has a story to tell, at this year’s festival we will hear stories from our community.  The photo below tells a story too, it was taken at the 2015 Eagan Art Festival on Sunday around 3 p.m. right before we had to close due to an incoming storm.  Fortunately all of the people and the art work were safe and the show closed with record attendance of over 8500!

Do not forget to stop by the Eagan Community Center to view the mural created this past June at the festival!  Thank you again to Eagan artist Teresa Cox for facilitating this beautiful piece painted and embellished by the community!

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!
