About the Slow Water Arts Festival

We are pleased to announce the 1st annual SLOW WATER ARTS FESTIVAL hosted by the Freeport Art Museum and the Freeport Downtown Development Foundation. Slow Water is a rough translation for the Native American word Pecatonica and since the Pec river flows through Freeport, this seemed to be a fitting way to honor that hertiage. This exciting two day event is expected to draw thousands of visitors and will feature exhibiting and selling artists, live entertainment, and food and beverage cafes.  Our mission is to create a unique experience for visitors to enjoy visual, performing and culinary arts in the heart of Freeport's historic downtown.
