The Des Moines Arts Festival is now accepting applications for the Prairie Meadows Community Outreach Program, an event that takes place on-site at the annual three-day festival. This year's festival will be held June 27-29 in downtown Des Moines' Western Gateway Park.

The Community Outreach Program is a partnership between Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino and the festival to offer local nonprofit organizations the opportunity to share their mission with thousands of guests free of charge.

In exchange for promotional space, each selected organization either offers an interactive arts-related activity for guests or provides volunteers for the festival. There is an additional option to pay for space at a reduced rate of $600. Up to 22 organizations can be featured in the program.

Interested nonprofits can find more information on the Arts Festival's website. All applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. on April 18.
