We are excited to invite you to join us for the 7th Annual Columbus Indiana ArtFest. It is a high quality juried fine art festival which will be located in Mill Race Park in the heart of the Architecture Capitol of the Midwest. We moved ArtFest from Washington Street to Mill Race park to help create a better environment for artists and fair goers as well. The park is conveniently located just two blocks from the center of downtown and features welcoming pathways with beautiful landscaping with ample parking. Columbus ArtFest will be held on Saturday June 25th and Sunday June 26th with artist setup on Friday June 24th. As a valuable part of the Columbus downtown, Mill Race Park is surrounded by convenient parking for artists and fair goers and within easy walking distance to the many unique stores and fine restaurants in the downtown area.

Why you'll find Columbus unforgettable...

Welcome to Columbus, Indiana, a surprising community that is known around the world for its collection of work by renowned architects and landscape architects. Columbus is a great destination for a getaway.

Located within the Indianapolis, Louisville, and Cincinnati triangle, this would be just another forgettable small Midwestern city except for the vision of local leaders who wanted to make Columbus the best community they could create. The results speak for themselves.
