2017 Dates: September 16 11-4 pm

The Whitewater Main Street Festival is an annual event celebrating the Arts. Created through a partnership between multiple organizations and businesses the event is held throughout the city of Whitewater. The historic architecture and natural beauty serves as the perfect backdrop for exploring galleries, local shops and restaurants and to experience the many diverse forms of the arts we support in our city.


Make September 16th/17th a weekend for the family. This year we are collaborating with Discover Whitewater Series, a great family run that supports local non profits, held on Sept 17. 

During the festival will be your opportunity for the family to make your tie-dye runners t-shirts and signs of encouragement to your favorite runners. Later that day runners can pick up their packets and enjoy the pre race dinner on campus.

Visit Discover Whitewater Series for details on the race activities.

2017 will bring great opportunities to immerse yourself and family in the arts with hands on art making, sidewalk sales, art exhibits and music for all to enjoy.

Check out last years drumming circle! Christine Hayes will be returning with loads of fun for all. No musical talent required! As the people change so does the beat! It's awesome to watch, listen and participate in.

Proceeds from the event go to support the local arts environment in our community. Funds will help support scholarships for local high school and college students, community art programing with a focus on people with disabilities. It will also help support creative improvements to our city such as public murals, mosaics and sculptures.
