The Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts fosters public awareness of the arts through an annual festival, artist scholarships, donated sculptures, and youth programs.

The Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts is considered one of the top outdoor fine art festivals in the Midwest and boasts a juried art exhibition featuring 110 artists from all over the United States, in Ceramics (Functional or Decorative), Drawing/Pastels/Printmaking, Fiber/Leather, Glass, Jewelry, 2D Mixed Media, 3D Mixed Media, Painting (watercolor, oil or acrylic), Photography, Sculpture and Wood.

The Mission of the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts is to bring fine art to the Oconomowoc area through an annual, juried, festival of the arts, and to provide cultural and educational opportunities.


In addition to the art exhibition, visitors can look forward to a silent art auction, interactive children’s area, various musical and entertainment groups, and – of course – delicious food! Sponsored by the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts, Ltd. – an all-volunteer community organization – the festival has been taking place for over half a century!

The festival is held annually on the third weekend in August in beautiful Fowler Park in the heart of Oconomowoc. Situated about halfway between Milwaukee and Madison on the shores of Fowler Lake, the festival draws visitors from both metropolitan areas – and beyond!

So come to Oconomowoc – ‘where the waters meet’ – to celebrate and shop for art in a variety of formats: photography, painting, drawing, fiber, jewelry, wood, metal, glass, stone. We assure you that the art expressions are as exquisite as the scenery.
