It’s an exciting time for the Columbia Festival of the Arts!

You may have noticed something a little different about Columbia Festival of the Arts –  we’ve grown! We are now presenting four weekend-long festivals throughout the year – one in each season.

American Routes, our Spring 2015 Festival is the debut of our new format, under the direction of Todd Olson, our new Executive Director. Also new for CFA’s 2015 Spring Festival is an all-inclusive ticket deal – for the first time we’re offering the ACCESS Pass. For $125 you can attend all ticketed events during the Spring Festival.

We’re offering an impressive, engaging lineup of artists in our 2015 Spring Festival from April 16-19, and we’re sure you’ll find a few that you won’t want to miss. American Routes is at the intersection of American traditions and the always-evolving American journey. You’ll find people and stories of our shared history, some whose roots began here and others whose routes brought them to us.

Some of the beauty in a multidisciplinary festival is that our artists’ routes can go anywhere in the world. The first festival in our new format starts here at home.

Looking forward to summer?
The 2015 Summer Festival will take place June 12 – June 27, beginning with our Free Opening Weekend on the Lakefront. We’re busy finalizing the lineup – but we can tell you there are some VERY exciting artists in store!
