Our Story

The beginning of the Fort Dodge Fine Arts Association was not an elaborate one. In 1985 the group produced a paper calendar of annual events and put on the Oak Hill Arts Festival. Since this time the group has grown quite a bit by creating a voice for the arts in Fort Dodge. There are now multiple members, events, social media, and the calendar has since moved to Google.

As an organization, the by-laws and board have been strengthened. Communication has been created for the arts organizations in this community. There is also a fund established at the Fort Dodge Community Foundation and United Way which has attributed to much success of the association.
