About the event
Updated 8/13/21 - 17th Annual Art Festival Cancelled for 2021 Due to the continued uncertainties arising from the renewed covid-19 epidemic, the difficult decision was made to cancel the 2021 Driftless Area Art Festival. When making the decision, the committee unanimously decided to prioritize the safety of our artists, volunteers, attendees, community and the future well-being of the festival and cancel this year's event. We understand the great disappointment to many that the festival will not be held this year. The decision was not made lightly. Anyone who is interested in making future decisions about the Driftless Area Art Festival is strongly encouraged to join the planning committee. The 2022 Driftless Area Art Festival will be September 17 and 18. We encourage everyone to support local artists and we will continue featuring our juried artists on Facebook and Instagram
Discover the Area. Discover the Artists.
No matter what direction you are coming from, you’ll enjoy a scenic, meandering journey through wooded hills and deep valleys.
The Driftless Area, a unique region that escaped the glaciers of the Ice Age, is an inspirational setting to all manner of talented artists. Its hills and valleys are home to painters and potters, woodworkers and weavers, metal smiths and musicians, vintners and brewmasters.
To see, hear and taste the exceptional variety of their creations, you usually have to visit studios and stores, cafes and concerts. But once a year, on the third weekend in September, these artists gather together in Crawford County, Wisconsin, at the Driftless Area Art Festival.
Enjoy a drive with exceptional scenery. Spend a few hours strolling through the exhibits. Taste some local fare and sip some local wines. Listen to some great music. Take home some fine art and fine memories. Please join us Sept 18 & 19 in Soldiers Grove, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday . You will love what you see and experience!
