The Lotus World Music Festival
Lotus brings artists from around the world to downtown Bloomington for a memorable long weekend of music and more in mid-September each year. With free and ticketed events.
The Lotus World Music & Arts Festival showcases happen in multiple downtown venues; one wristband grants entrance to all performance venues. Also visit the free Arts Village for interactive visual arts. Check the website (www.lotusfest.org) for updates and a full schedule of the festival! In addition to the yearly festival, Lotus also provides “Lotus Blossoms” throughout the year. Art-making workshops, concerts for students, the Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar, and more: this programming is mostly free and open to the public.
