Monarch Festival June 4th

Whooohooo these were some big ol barrels compared to the previous rain barrels I’ve painted but I finally got them all ready to go for the Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana’s upcoming Monarch Festival!

Head on over to Mount St. Francis Saturday June 4th for the Monarch Festival for fine arts, crafts, live entertainment, music, food trucks, kids zone activities, and an amazing butterfly experience.


The Monarch Festival, annually sponsored by the Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana and MountFest hosted by the Mount Saint Francis Center for Spirituality, will, for the 2nd year, combine into a grand outdoor celebration in 2022! The all-day Monarch Festival at MountFest event will feature an inclusive Regional Arts Festival, live entertainment and musicians, food trucks, chicken dinner dining area, Kids Zone activities, game booths, and a fantastic butterfly experience! This event is free and open to the public. Monarch Festival at MountFest drew more than 7,000 attendees in 2021 and promises to be an even larger event this year!

Come. Create. Celebrate. Mount Saint Francis has been an integral part of Kentuckiana for more than 100 years. Since the 1920s, the friars have held an annual summer picnic attended by thousands each year. In 2015, MountFest was established by the Mount Saint Francis Center for Spirituality to provide a premier event to celebrate the area’s arts, music, and food. The friars of our province have a long history of celebrating and honoring the arts. With the launching of the Franciscan Arts Initiative, we want to ensure that beauty and spirit brought to life through art continue to be honored and celebrated.

The Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana promotes the arts in Clark, Floyd, and Harrison counties through partnerships with individuals, groups, and businesses. They leverage their events, programming, and space as platforms for community arts and culture engagement. The Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana has hosted the Monarch Festival in different locations throughout Southern Indiana each year since 2010.

All proceeds from Monarch Festival at MountFest will support programs and activities at Mount Saint Francis Center for Spirituality and the Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana.
