Performing Artists Registration

Thank you or your interest in performing during Taste of the Arts. All performance artists donate their time to showcase their art form. Arts United's free Taste of the Arts Festival (The Taste) is now in its 9th year providing downtown visitors an explosion of cultural inspiration designed to showcase a wide variety of arts organizations and talented artists from an ever-expanding region around the greater Fort Wayne area.

In addition to a juried art marketplace, nonprofit organizational booths, arts and crafts, and a wide variety of restauranteurs, The Taste hosts nearly a dozen performance stages designed to accommodate actors, musicians, dancers, and other types of performing artists.

This is a rain or shine festival! In the event of inclement weather, performances may continue under tented stages, or there will be alternate indoor venues. .
