The annual ARTapalooza fine art show is held annually the first Saturday after Labor Day from 9:00am-4:00pm on the street and sidewalks of downtown Cedar Falls. This juried art show features many talented artists from throughout the region. Artwork includes ceramics, metal, paintings, glasswork, metal sculptures, fiber, jewelry, photography, drawing, printmaking and mixed media. In addition, there is something for everyone to enjoy as downtown is filled with artist demonstrations, live entertainment and children’s activities.
Artists hoping to showcase their work must pass a highly competitive process to be accepted into the show. Applications are posted on the Community Main Street website in January and are due in May.
The ARTapalooza committee is dedicated to producing a fun celebration of the arts that includes activities and entertainment for the entire family and we are always looking for volunteers to help out during the day. There are a variety of ways you can help for all or part of the day: oversee children's activities, artist hospitality, information booth, set up and clean up, etc. If you would like to volunteer for this event, please contact the Community Main Street office at 277-0213.
