Music

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.

Family Fun

The Dubuque Museum or Art is putting together the Kids’ Creation Station tent, both Saturday and Sunday during the art fair. Multiple projects will be instructed and supplies will be available for anyone to create their own pieces. Creativity is nourishing for the soul, let’s make things together! Dubuque Museum of art will be offering tours of their new exhibit throughout the weekend.
