Lewiston Art Festival

August 8 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm


Lewiston’s signature event, now in its 54th year, features work by more than 175 exceptional artists and fine crafters. Meet the artists one-on-one and enjoy more than 20,000 original works of art — including paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, fiber, glass, wood, mixed media, and photography. The Lewiston Art Festival is the #1 event of its kind and the perfect way to celebrate your summer weekend.

Stop by the ArtZone to create a Make and Take activity. College Alley features the work of high school and college students. Don’t miss this chance to start collecting the work of these emerging artists.

The Hennepin Park Gazebo area will be transformed into an Iroquois Market that brings to life the rich history of Native American traditions featuring traditional drumming, music and dance. We’ll showcase the work of some of the finest Native American artisans from both sides of the border and offer free hands on activities. We are so excited to share these traditions with our community so they may better understand the people, the customs and the beauty of Native American culture.

Non-stop entertainment provides a respite for tired feet, and food vendors and restaurants offer a variety of tasty treats and beverages. Street performers are welcome (but must register) Rain or Shine!
