COME CRAWL WITH US!
The Reedikulus Arts Festival is an annual family-friendly celebration of local and regional creativity that is one part art crawl, one part street party and one part fringe fest—all with plenty of ridiculous weaved in! Take our self-guided downtown walking tour featuring artists exhibiting in retail spaces, vacant store-fronts, and back alleys.
This year’s Crawl features artists presenting visual art, poetry, multi-media installations, public art, performance, and short films-- with demonstrations, art activities and surprises along the way!
Grab some food from a variety of Food Trucks in City Park and enjoy local beer and choice wines at select locations along the route.
Dress for the weather and come out and join the fun - rain or shine!
