Q-FEST is a community celebration of the arts (visual, musical, culinary) in Quincy, IL. Q-FEST is kicking it up a notch and expanding its fine art focus to also include makers of one-of-a-kind items who may not necessarily identify with the fine art label. All interested artists/makers must apply and will be subject to the jury process. Approximately 50-60 artists will be accepted to display and sell their work throughout the weekend. Original painting, photography, jewelry, mixed media, sculpture, glass, ceramics, fiber and more will be available at a variety of price points.
Friday, June 22: 5:30p-9:30p
Saturday, June 23: 10a-5p
Sunday, June 24: 11a-4p
We provide above-and-beyond hospitality for our artists! We also give $5,000 in artists awards including a $1,000 best of show award and pre-sell art bucks. These art bucks may be used to purchase artwork from any participating artists and are reimbursed for the full face value. All sponsors receive art bucks based on their level of giving, so this cash is ready to be spent! Ample nearby parking is available at no cost. Electricity is available at no extra charge on a first come, first-serve basis. Most booths are within 50-100 feet of an electrical outlet.
