Boom-fest is an annual Arts & Crafts Festival in downtown Vinton, Iowa, promoted by Vinton Unlimited, Vinton’s merged non-profit Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development group. Artisans and crafters, farmers market and food vendors are welcomed to the downtown streets of Vinton. Kids activities and live entertainment fill the time slot with a family-friendly street fair type atmosphere for all to enjoy.

Boom-fest gets its name from the annual Boomtown Celebration held at the county fairgrounds on the South side of Vinton the same weekend. Boomtown is a celebration of fireworks, presented by the Iowa Pyrotechnic Association, and has been described as one of the best fireworks displays you will ever find in small-town USA.
