August 16-18, Civic Center Park in historic downtown St. Joseph, Mo., transforms into a celebration of St. Joseph’s 170th Birthday, and of our arts and entertainment.
Buttons are now on sale and are $8 in advance, and $10 at the gate.
All festival guests under the age of 10 are free while accompanied by an adult.
“There’s nowhere else in the Midwest offering this caliber of entertainment at the price of just under $3 a day,” says Teresa Fankhauser, Allied Arts Council Executive Director.
This year’s design featured on the buttons and t-shirts is the work of St. Joseph, Missouri resident Fran Texeira, winner of the artwork contest hosted earlier this year by the Allied Arts Council. Texeira is a graduate of Missouri Western State University where she majored in graphic design.
