The show is held in beautiful Palmer Park and is adjacent to some of the city's best neighborhoods. Residents are professionals with huge homes and great disposable income.

The show winds around a pond and runs adjacent to the historic log cabin. Artists are encouraged to get out of the tent and create installations that enhance their work and interact with the natural beauty of the park.
The "entertainment" is art projects and artist demonstrations. Patrons are invited to get their hands dirty. All of this helps to contribute to appreciation and sales.

Welcome to the Smash the Narrative project. The purpose of this project is to use art to promote public discussion around major political and social issues. Every two years we award a prize for art relating to a specific topic.
This years theme is titled “You can’t paint that!“. The topic is taboo and censorship. This is an important issue at the moment with governments, educational institutions and big tech companies taking it upon themselves to decide which ideas can and can’t be discussed. We would like to encourage artists to think about what it feels like to be told they should avoid expressing certain ideas or alternatively the necessity of limiting creative and intellectual expression to avoid causing offence.

There are about 30 available booths, and they will be reserved on a first-come / first-serve basis. If you prefer to bring your own tent and tables you are welcome to set up next to the Museum tents.
The Festival is open 10 AM to 5 PM each day, rain or shine. If you agree to come to the festival we need, and expect, that you will be here for the entire Festival. Please bring enough inventory. The event is costly for the Museum to put on and many of our visitors travel a long distance to meet you.
The Festival is designed to show high quality work by Iroquois artists and craftspeople. Only Iroquois hand-made work should be displayed and sold. Preferably it should be your own work and your best. Handmade work from Iroquois members of your community is also acceptable. Imitations, commercial imports, and items made by non-native individuals are not permitted. Special requests, such as electricity, can sometimes be arranged in advance. We ask that you use our tables and park your vehicles in the areas we provide so that everyone can get around safely.
Lastly, if you find yourself traveling through the area this summer, please consider joining us any weekend to promote your art. While we will not have tents and tables available, you are welcome to set up your own and sell your work. Attendance is usually best when we have scheduled events. Check the calendar on our website for dates. There is no booth fee for setting up on these days.
We look forward to seeing you once again.

The Art Garage is currently seeking an artist to assist the Art Garage in a Public Art Project!
The mission of the Art Garage is to encourage an appreciation for and participation in the visual, performing and literary arts. More specifically, as part of the Olde Main Redevelopment District, the Art Garage is helping to bring value back to the area along with many other businesses and private property owners who want to reclaim rather than demolish our city’s history.
The Art Garage is hoping to undertake a public art mural on our Main Street building during the 2019 year! For this mural, we would like to focus on the unity of our community at our Three Corners location. The Art Garage is a welcoming neighbor to the diverse populations within our community and proudly displays “Everyone Welcome” on our front door. Unity is defined as the state of being united or joined as a whole. The word unity is a call for people of every gender, race, and disability to come together. With the concept of our new logo, a finger print to recognize the identity of each individual in our community, we would like to incorporate different finger prints into our design to show diversity.
We hope to represent all of the unique cultures and ethnicities in an original, artistic design.
If you are interested in working with the Art Garage in developing a public art mural, please contact us at:
email@example.com or (920)448-6800 for more information
