Come. Create. Celebrate. Mount Saint Francis has been an integral part of Kentuckiana for more than 100 years. Since the 1920s, the friars held an annual summer picnic which was attended by thousands each year. In 2015, MountFest was established by the Mount Saint Francis Center for Spirituality to provide a premier event to celebrate the area's arts, music, and food. The friars of our province have a long history of celebrating and honoring the arts. We believe in the importance of art for our communities. With the Franciscan Arts Initiative launching, we want to ensure that beauty and spirit brought to life through art continue to be honored and celebrated.
The Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana promotes the arts in Clark, Floyd, and Harrison counties through partnerships with individuals, groups, and businesses. We leverage our events, programming, and space as platforms for community arts and culture engagement.
The Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana has hosted the Monarch Festival in different locations throughout Southern Indiana each year since 2010.
All proceeds from Monarch Festival at MountFest will support programs and activities at Mount Saint Francis Center for Spirituality and the Arts Alliance of Southern Indiana.
