Each winter over 1,100 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 presented by Foster Group is an exclusive dinner party that culminates with a celebration of artists, selected from the annual competitive jury process, that will descend on The Festival June 28-30, 2019. The Festival is one of the world's most reveared 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.
