Downtown Festivals:  
Art on the Square
Held annually the 3rd weekend in May, Art on the Square is a nationally recognized juried art show intended to foster the appreciation of the visual and performing arts to a diverse public by presenting an exhibit and sale of fine art, providing educational and enjoyable workshops for children and promoting the importance of the creative process.
This commitment includes providing these goals free of charge, not only for entertainment, but also to educate the residents of Southwestern Illinois and the surrounding community.
