Arts festival set against scenic Madison backdrop


Madison, Indiana, recognized by Ladies Home Journal magazine as the “Prettiest Smalltown in the Midwest,” is the perfect backdrop for next weekend’s Madison Chautauqua Festival of Art.

In its 39th year, the Madison Chautauqua Festival of Art will draw thousands of visitors on Saturday, September 25 and Sunday, September 26 to Southern Indiana’s premiere juried fine arts and crafts show.

The Madison Chautauqua features artwork that is handmade and individually designed by the artist. Come and find your passion among paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, weaving, folk art, jewelry, fiber, wood, baskets, clay, glass, paper, leather and wearable art!

In addition to the art, festival goers will enjoy live music, food vendors on the riverfront and a kids’ activity tent.

Madison is easily accessible from Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Louisville. Click here for a map and directions.
