Thank you or your interest in volunteering to perform at Taste of the Arts 2022. The expanded festival footprint that was implemented last year will return: there will be stages on the Arts Campus, Rousseau Plaza, The Landing, and at Promenade Park. Some of the stages may have longer performance times for groups that are able to do a longer set.

All performance artists donate their time to showcase their art form. Arts United's free Taste of the Arts Festival is now in its 14th year.  We strive to bring the largest diversity of performances of any event in town and show off the amazing talent that our community has to offer. The other part of this mission is to provide a FREE event to attend, allowing us to make the arts accessible to all, no matter your background, culture, socioeconomic status, or any other possible barrier that could prevent someone from being a part of this community. Your participation for this event is a donation of one hour to showcase the vibrant fabric of our arts community and a celebration of the strength and vibrancy of our arts and culture in Northeast Indiana.

In addition to a juried art marketplace, nonprofit organizational booths, arts and crafts, hands-on activities, and a wide variety of restauranteurs, the Taste this year will have 7 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 if it is safe to do so.

Complete this request form NO LATER THAN JUNE 1st! Applications after that day will be considered on a wait list. You will receive an email confirming your submission. Performers that are selected will be notified by JULY 1st and receive the tentative schedule July 15th.
