Mississippi Earthtones Festival

The Mississippi Earthtones Festival is a celebration of the great rivers through art, music, and conservation which is brought to you by Alton Main Street, the Sierra Club, and Jacoby Arts Center. Family-friendly activities take place from Noon until 6:00 PM, and festival goers will enjoy artist booths and live music which continue until 10:00 PM.

At this free & family-friendly event, 70+ booths will be featured with education, interactive art experiences and performances, as well as great local food & beverages. The goal is to bring locals and tourists alike to Downtown Alton to celebrate life on the Mississippi River and learn about ways that we can all be good stewards of our environment. Mississippi Earthtones festival is held annually on the 3rd Saturday in September, as part of the State of Illinois’ “It’s Our River Day” initiative to celebrate Illinois watersheds through education, recreation and conservation.
