The Festival of the Arts is supported by local artists, area businesses, generous patrons, and dedicated volunteers.
The Stevens Point Festival of Arts (FoA) has maintained a reputation as one of the finest art fairs in Wisconsin for 47 year in the minds of both artists and attendees.
More than 3,000 people attend this event and are spending time and dollars in our community. As residents of Central Wisconsin we are fortunate to attract a quality fine art festival of this magnitude to kick off the professional artist’s Fine Art Fair season right here in Stevens Point!
The Stevens Point Festival of the Arts is a non-profit 501(c) organization. All monetary donations are managed by the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin (CFCWI).
Your fully tax deductible gift can be made with a credit card through the CFCWI
Or mailed to Festival of the Arts to:

Thank you for the generous donation... It was quite flattering to find out that the Stevens Point and [its] surrounding communities are supporting young artists like myself… I cannot express enough how important this award is, not only to me, but the future students here at UWSP [as well]. People like [me], are privileged to be part of this community that has an appreciation for the Arts and Humanities.

"Giving back to UWSP Fine Art Students is extremely important to me. I am a professional artist because of my experiences and education through the UWSP Fine Art Department. I received a Festival Award when I was a fine art student in 2004, and that money helped me make the leap into becoming a full time artist. It brings me pride to be part of the FoA Council today and to help support future artists here in my community."
