About

Downtown Joplin Alliance is proud to now be hosting Joplin Arts Fests. The Joplin Kiwanis, in association with other nonprofits, have done a fantastic job through the years of running this festival.

Now, we are pleased to say that the 2021 festival will be held at the historic Empire Market, nestled between Downtown and East Town. We will welcome the region’s finest artists and performers for a weekend of culture, creativity, and fine food and drink.
