The Arts Alliance of Greater Bloomington


Local and Regional Art Festivals

Bloomington Fourth Street Festival

Held every year on Labor Day weekend, the Fourth Street Festival of the Arts & Crafts is an artist-organized, admission-free, wheelchair accessible, cultural event in the heart of the Festival District of BEAD (Bloomington Entertainment and Arts Districts). The Festival recruits high-caliber artists from all over the United States and Canada to national acclaim. Complementing the experience is live musical entertainment, hands-on art creation for children and adults, a spoken word stage with “poetry on demand”, interactive installation art, and informative booths presented by local, not-for-profit, arts-oriented organizations. Our community can experience art in many forms thanks to this Festival.
