The Des Moines Arts Festival - Fun Times!

Just days away from the 2017 Des Moines Arts Festival and we were thrilled to have Stephen King and Kristian Day take some time away and be with us in studio to talk about the "back-story". Here we talk about the festival, what it means to Des Moines, the artists and what one thing you can do to enhance your experience. What started back in 1958 as "Art in the Park" has grown to become an international sensation. Then we learn from Kristian that the Interrobang Film Festival, which has been part of the Des Moines Arts Festival will, this year, become a "stand-alone" event in the East Village. Some great radio here...enjoy!
