Community Outreach Program

Des Moines Arts Festival® Community Outreach Program


 WINNER - Best Community Outreach Program
- Gold Pinnacle Award from the International Festivals & Events Association

The mission of the Des Moines Arts Festival® is to add vibrancy to Central Iowa by creating opportunities for people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds to celebrate the arts. By continuing to expand the children’s programming, and encouraging all on-site participants to offer even more creative and interactive arts activities, the Festival fulfills this mission.

The Community Outreach Program offers non-profit organizations the opportunity to participate on-site at the Festival and to share their mission to thousands of guests free of charge. In exchange for their free promotional space, each organization either offers an interactive arts activity for guests or provides volunteers for the Festival.

The application process for the 2015 Festival will launch in late March. Watch this space for complete details about how your non-profit organization can participate.
