Business Sponsorship Opportunities!

The Stevens Point Festival of Arts (FoA) has maintained a reputation as one of the finest art fairs in Wisconsin for 46 year in the minds of both artists and attendees.

More than 3,500 people attend this event and are spending time and dollars in our community. As residents of Central Wisconsin we are fortunate to attract a quality fine art festival of this magnitude to kick off the professional artist’s Fine Art Fair season right here in Stevens Point!

Our mission to support new artists through our FoA Student Awards. Our goal is to donate four or more of these $500 UWSP Festival Art Awards to UWSP fine art students. Also Emerging Artist awards are given to Stevens Point area Junior and Senior High students.
