What about COVID???
Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit.
BRING YOUR MASK- you may be required to wear a mask during your visit to MidWest Flow Fest. We care about you, we care about the community. We want all our guests and attendees to feel WELCOME & SAFE, and we are committed to following the city, county, & state guidelines for outdoor events. To this end- we encourage mask wearing during the event! We will have bathrooms with running water available on site- plenty of soap and paper towels (just ask us at the registration tent if you notice a space running low!). We will have hand sanitizing stations as well. Wash Your Hands and Wear Your Mask! Bring your props, and have a blast!
So it’s FREE to watch?
We aren’t fans of fences; we are working to make flow arts MORE ACCESSIBLE. So please come for FREE, and get excited about what we’re doing. There will be music throughout the weekend, and lots of dancing. We’re also offering a unique collection of arts and crafts vendors, many selling flow props that are hand-crafted and hard to find. Additionally, free workshops and free performances are scheduled throughout the day and into the evening to support the general public in getting into the flow!
Festival Hours: 10am-7pm
