Autumn Artistry began in 2000 to bring people to the beautiful City of Maples. The annual event, always held on the 3rd Saturday in September, features local artists, artisans, antiques, fall and holiday décor, delicious foods, live music and one of the largest car shows around. The event is free for shoppers to attend, and in recent years has showcased well over 100 vendors from across the state of Iowa and Southern Minnesota. Vendors are located throughout downtown Osage and at the Mitchell County Fairgrounds. For shoppers' convenience, we provide free shuttle service to the different locations.
The Mitchell County Blacktop Cruisers host their car show in conjunction with our event, which features hundreds of cars and is located at the Mitchell County Fairgrounds.
