The Des Moines Arts Festival is an annual arts festival held in Western Gateway Park in the state capital of Des Moines. The festival is a three-day affair drawing in more than 200,000 people, and is ranked among the most notable festivals in the United States. Now an international phenomenon, the festival had evolved dramatically since its start in 1958. It now encompasses a diverse selection of the arts; everything from classic visual arts, live performance in music and theatre, to interactive arts and a film festival. As well as an array of outstanding art on show, there is also a large selection of eclectic food booths and trucks to choose from, as well as a beer tent. This all makes for a full day of fun and entertainment for the whole family.
