Boom-Fest 2020

Saturday, August 29, 2020


2020 marks the 11th Boom-Fest celebration. Boom-Fest is an annual Arts & Crafts Festival in downtown Vinton, Iowa, promoted by Vinton Unlimited, Vinton’s merged non-profit Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development group. Artisans and crafters, farmers market and food vendors are welcomed to the downtown streets of Vinton. Kids activities and live entertainment fill the time slot with a family-friendly street fair type atmosphere for all to enjoy.

Event Update 7/21/2020

At this point, we are continuing to make plans to hold Boom-Fest on Saturday, August 29 as scheduled. A final decision will be made on or before Tuesday, August 11th. 

This year’s event will definitely include some changes. Some possibilities include spreading vendors out more to allow for more space in between booths, having hand sanitizer stations available, one-way shopper flow and a few other things.

We plan to continue to monitor the situation across the state and Benton County and will rely on information from our public health experts. If conditions were to regress and we would need to cancel the event, we would hope to make that decision in July.
