Each winter over 1,000 artists from across North America apply for one of 180 booth spaces at the award-winning Des Moines Arts Festival. Be the first to know who made the cut at REVEAL.

REVEAL is an exclusive dinner party that culminates with the announcement of artists, selected from the annual competitive jury process, that will descend on the Festival June 22-24, 2018. The Festival is one of the world's most celebrated events and a significant part of Central Iowa's vibrant arts and culture economy. Your support helps us keep the Festival free to attend, while treating employees, clients, and friends to a spectacular evening.

Event Highlights
