For over 65 years, the Tallman Arts Festival has been a highlight of the summer, drawing artists of all kinds and community members of all ages. The two-day festival features live musical entertainers, food and drink, tours, and children’s activities. More than 60 vendors offer pottery, jewelry, paintings, mixed media photography, fiber art and more. Parents are welcome to allow their children to play in the fenced, supervised children’s area while they browse the grounds. Activities include a variety of crafts and games under a large tent.  

Attendees may also take a tour of the Lincoln-Tallman House. The tours invite guests to discover the beauty, ambiance, and history of the mansion during its heyday as the home of the William Morrison Tallman family. Tours begin at 11 AM, 12 PM, 1 PM and 2 PM both days. Tour price is $10 and free for RCHS members - purchase your tickets in the Helen Jeffris Wood Museum & Visitor Center.

Free on-street parking, or use the Mercy Hospital parking ramp.
