This year , as in many previous years, the members of the Board again were notified that the College Hill Arts Festival was named to Sunshine Artist magazine's list of '100 Best Fine Arts & Design Shows' in the North America. This honor is a reflection of the quality of the Festival and the regard held by patrons and participating artists alike. There are over 11,000 shows and festivals held in North America each year. Many shows in the Midwest are reviewed and ranked. The College Hill Arts Festival is the only show in Iowa to consistently make this 'Top 100 List' for Fine Art Shows.

SponsorsThe College Hill Arts Festival is a non-profit organization begun in 1979 with its sole purpose to serve the people of the Cedar Valley. We strive to attract quality artists and performing artists from both the National scene and in a few cases internationally. for presentation to the people of northeast Iowa. We strive to maintain the integrity of the Festival while keeping it free to the public. As a non profit entity run entirely by volunteers, the Festival depends on the support of businesses in the Cedar Valley. This represents a unique opportunity for businesses, both local and national, to show their support for a Festival with a national reputation while also providing them with comprehensive media coverage and the satisfaction of supporting the arts in the Cedar Valley.

The College Hill Art Festival also receives donations of services and goods from those interested in contributing to the organization.

Non-Profit Exhibitors

The College Hill Arts Festival has always allocated a limited amount of display area at the annual Festival to non-profit organizations who participate in, support, promote, publicize, or provide information in arts education. Since such display space is limited, non-profits must formally apply each year for space at CHAF.

The non-profit exhibitors application for this year's Festival will be available on-line starting about 1 February. Notification to successful applicants will be made by May 1.
