MacNider Arts Festival

The Charles H. MacNider Art Museum is pleased to announce the theme of the annual MacNider Arts Festival. This year’s “Create Waves” ocean theme will encourage children to use their imaginations while creating fun crafts on Sat., June 11 from 9 am – 5 pm. Arts activities for children, an Art Market of talented artists, and musical entertainment will all be part of the fun. The FREE Pancake Breakfast will also return in 2022!
All events are on the lawns of the Museum and the adjacent Mason City Public Library at 303 2nd Street SE in Mason City. Basic festival foods such as burgers and walking tacos will be sold throughout the afternoon. Proceeds of the food sales benefit the festival and Museum programming.
Children’s activities, including art crafts, face painting, the Imagination Playground, and an inflatable, will be offered from 9 am to 5 pm. There will also be live musical entertainment throughout the day, including the Mason City Municipal Band.
The MacNider Outdoor Art Market will be open from 9 am – 4 pm with many fine artists and crafts persons. This is your opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind pottery, jewelry, sculptures, glass, and much more. By purchasing work from these artists you are not only supporting local talent, you are purchasing quality unique art.
Area citizens are being recruited to volunteer during the Festival. If you are interested in volunteering during part of this event, contact Jackie at the Museum at 641-421-3666 or [email protected]
