The Foundry Art Centre and the St. Charles City County Library Foundation proudly present the first annual Arts and Literary Festival, celebrating the intersection of the arts and literacy!

This free festival will feature regional authors, poets, and book illustrators, as well as local artists, vendors, and musicians in the Grand Hall of the Foundry Art Centre from 10am – 5pm on Saturday, August 26, 2017. If you enjoy reading, artwork, poetry, or anything to do with the written word, you’ll want to spend the whole day at the Arts and Literary Festival! The speaking engagements, vendors, and music are appropriate for all ages to enjoy.
