Festival of the Arts

Festival of the Arts - every August

The Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts, started on the grounds of Zion Episcopal Church over 40 years ago, is a juried art festival enjoyed by artists and visitors alike.


It has often been named one of the 100 best art fairs in the country by Sunshine Magazine, all the while maintaining an intimate park setting. For over a third of a century, the festival has been held on the third weekend in August in beautiful Fowler Park on the shores of Fowler Lake in the heart of Oconomowoc. Situated roughly halfway between Milwaukee and Madison, the festival sees patrons from as far away as both large cities.


Patrons can enjoy various musical groups on three stages scattered throughout the park. Families are encouraged to create their own works of art in the Children’s Area adjacent to the Children’s Stage. Everyone will find delicious treats provided by local community organizations at the Food Pavilion.


Zion's ever-popular Pie Booth program is run by a committee of dedicated bakers and lay-bakers.  Profits from the Pie Booth are used to support our many outreach programs, including the Oconomowoc Food Pantry, Lake Area Free Clinic, and the Honduras .  For more information about this program, please leave a detailed message on the church voicemail, or complete the form found here - http://www.zion-oconomowoc.org/contact-us/
