With live music on two stages and pop-up performances across the Festival site, you never know what you'll discover at the Des Moines Arts Festival.

Thanks to our great sponsors, entertainment is FREE TO ATTEND! The lineup for the 2024 edition of the award-winning festival will be announced May 7.

The Festival features two stages - the Main Stage offers an explosive variety of live music from regional and national touring talent. The Roots Stage is a laid-back vibe of Americana and new music. Seating is casual and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Blankets and lawn chairs are welcome.

We are no longer accepting inquiries for the 2024 festival. Check back this fall to submit for the 2025 festival!
