MARCH 18, 2020. From the Marion Arts Festival:

Regrettably, the 2020 Marion Arts Festival has been canceled.

This decision was not made easily, but with the rapid developments regarding COVID-19, CDC recommendations concerning mass gatherings, the knowledge that Iowa has now seen community spread and the reality of our small footprint offering limited opportunity for social distancing, we are prioritizing the health and safety of artists, attendees, and the community.

The MAF half marathon and 5K runs are also canceled; please join us in thanking Corridor Running for their energy and commitment.

Watch the Marion Arts Festival Facebook page for information on how we might all support our invited artists!

We apologize to this year’s exhibitors, sponsors, partners, volunteers, and attendees for the impact of this unforeseen crisis.

Please join us in celebrating the festival’s return Saturday, May 15th, 2021! We wish health and stability to all!

We will be providing more information to our registered runners soon. Thank you for your support and understanding, and we look forward to an amazing event in 2021!
