This Museum of the Southwest's annual arts festival has been going on for over 50 years! Located in the Midland Historic District, shop artists’ booths featuring everything from jewelry and blown glass to oil paintings and ceramics—all on the front lawn of the historic Turner Mansion. SeptemberFest is scheduled for the weekend following Labor Day each year.
SeptemberFest is much more than an outdoor shopping experience. Bring the entire family down to our campus to participate in KinderFest — with curated creative activities keeping all ages in mind.
Artists from near and far have been gathering here for 52 years.
SeptemberFest is a well supported community event. Together, Midland and the neighboring city of Odessa serve an area of over 250,000 people known as the "Petroplex." We invite you to experience our West Texas hospitality. Midland was recently ranked as the highest per capita personal income in the United States. Join a legacy of artists and apply today!
We'll have an array of artistic and interactive activities to inspire our next generation of creators and innovators.
