2020 in the works

Dubuque County Fine Arts Society will host its 43rd annual DubuqueFest Fine Arts Festival May 15 – 17, 2020. Held in the heart of the historic downtown Washington Park, the free, three-day festival welcomes Tri-State community members to experience art through a juried fine art fair, live music, book release and other programs.

In 1977 the Dubuque County Fine Arts Society started the state of Iowa’s longest running Arts Festival.  DubuqueFest is three days and two nights of celebrating and creating the Art of and in Dubuque. A major change was to bring the music stage, beer sales, and all food vendors over to Washington Park area. Nothing is at the Town Clock, the whole event is together on one block.
