Art Fest Action
An annual art festival in Joplin expands and finds a new home. The fourth annual Joplin Art Fest continued this weekend. The festival has been turned into a two day event because it continues to grow in size.
The event also found a new home in Mercy Park. There was plenty of good food, music, and more than 40 artists from across the four states and beyond.
This was also the first year for the patrons’ program, where some people pledged to spend at least one hundred dollars on art in exchange for early access to the festival.
