Rivertown Fall Art Festival will be largest in its history in its 46th year
August 2023 - The historic Rivertown Fall Art Festival will be held in its 46th year in Lowell Park, Stillwater, MN on Saturday and Sunday, October 7 and 8, 2023.
This community event is produced by the Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce. A staple in Stillwater for 45+ years, the Rivertown Fall Art Festival is one of the most popular and well attended Art Festivals in the Midwest. This outdoor, family-friendly event will feature over 180 fine artisan booths in a variety of artistic categories….making this the LARGEST Art Festival in its history!
“Hosting this Art Festival in downtown Stillwater, on the banks of the St. Croix River is the perfect backdrop to showcase fine art, just steps away from the art, antiques, and attractions that are available year round in downtown Stillwater, in addition to the wonderful restaurants, shops and hotels that are a part of the historic mainstreet!” shares Robin Anthony, President of the Greater Stillwater Chamber. “Festival-go’ers make a weekend of it and enjoy all that Stillwater has to offer!.”
During the two-day event, attendees can enjoy beer or wine while walking throughout the Art Festival. A beverage tent will be set up in Lowell Park along with a variety of food truck selections also available on site. Local entertainment will be featured on the stage along with roaming entertainment throughout both days of the Art Festival.
