Rebel Art Fest

South Bend, IN 46601


REBEL ART FEST is a curated showcase of local makers, artists and musicians with the best modern craft, design and sound.  Enjoy music by local bands, shop handcrafted goods,  view fun and irreverent art, take a bite from a food truck, and try a DIY project as you wander the festival, set in South Bend's River Park neighborhood.

The festival is the brainchild of maker and artist, Michelle FitzGerald and musician and maker, Nathaniel FitzGerald who wish to support and encourage the creative makers in South Bend and bring more life to River Park. The neighborhood is home to their makerspace, MAKE SOUTH BEND; community space and music venue, The Well; IUSB and the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts; Merriman's Playhouse jazz venue; and home to many creative neighbors such as sculptor Victor Riley who created totem poles around River Park and the greater South Bend area. River Park is home to musicians like Letters From Earth, SPACESHIPS, Analecta, Paul Erdman, and more.
