Call for Artists: Arts Guild Riverfront Festival


The Northfield Arts Guild‘s annual Riverfront Festival will be held in the heart of downtown Northfield in September 2014. Over 60 artists and fine craft artisans will show their work on the stone walkways hugging both sides of the Cannon River. As always, the Festival coincides with the Defeat of Jesse James Days celebration, which brings crowds of 150,000 each year. Find wonderful photography, pottery, paintings, fiber art, jewelry and more by artists from all over Minnesota and the region.
