Neighborhood Festivals 2024

Hold space in your calendar for May and June 2024 to join your neighbors in celebrating over a decade of neighborhood festivals! Experience live music, family friendly activities, food, vendors, and more. The International Festival of Arts & Ideas is proud to support this annual series of one-day festivals programmed by the committee members, local arts and business partners, and volunteers within each neighborhood.

These events are FREE and open to the public. More details will be updated leading up to these events, but until then mark your calendar and invite your family, friends, coworkers and more!

The 2024 Neighborhood Festivals are made possible in part by the NEA Our Town Grant. Our Town is the National Endowment for the Arts’ creative placemaking grants program. These grants support projects that integrate arts, culture, and design activities into efforts that strengthen communities by advancing local economic, physical, and/or social outcomes. Successful Our Town projects ultimately lay the groundwork for systems changes that sustain the integration of arts, culture, and design into local strategies for strengthening communities.
