JURY DETAILS


Event Summary

Millsream Arts Festival is an outdoor, juried art show held on the last Sunday in September from 11 AM to 5 PM on Main Street in St. Joseph, Minnesota. 

Millstream is a festive environment with a wide variety of visual arts, music, dance, enticing foods, and hands-on art activities for children. There's something for everyone!



General Information
Millstream Arts Festival gives artists a venue to display and sell their work to a large, interested audience. All artwork is juried, which provides us with a higher level of quality, diversity and creativity of art on display, exemplifying the gifted artists in the region.

Artists’ fees are used to produce the event the following year. Crowd numbers are estimated at over 8,000.

Participation is open to all artists working in basketry, ceramics, fibers, handmade paper, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, wood, mixed media, original two-dimensional fine arts, and literary arts. The work exhibited must be of original concept, designed and crafted by the applicant—unique art forms developed primarily for aesthetic and/or original concept rather than practical application except in cases of true folk artistry. Jurors will look for quality, originality and consistency of design. We do not accept work made from commercial molds, kits or patterns, or other commercial methods. Copyrighted designs not owned by the artist are not permitted. Commercial reproductions are not acceptable. All artwork must be presented by the artist submitting the application. Only completed applications, including artist information, work images and descriptions will be processed.

We will again be awarding Best in Show awards for the top three artists, which may include an Emerging Artist award. Booth display is taken into consideration for Best in Show.
