Unfortunately we have to cancel the 2022 EcoArts Fest.
However, ArtStart has secured funding for the 2023 EcoArts Fest, a free event involving schools, artists, performers,
and families in dynamic interactive experiences that illuminate the connection between the arts and the natural world.
The theme of 2023, Pollinator Particulars is all about pollinators from bees to Monarchs to hummingbirds to wasps! Check back December 2022 for the specific date of this one-of-a-kind May event.
In a partnership with the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge ArtStart’s EcoArts Fest has become a tradition. Originally, a 1-day event that brought local schools, families, artist and performers to the MN Valley National Wildlife Refuge to celebrate our close connection to nature through the arts, the EcoArts Fest has transformed into a 3-part festival which was last held the week of May 17-May 23, 2021.
