Galveston's 21st Annual Juried Fine Art Festival, will take place October 20 & 21, 2018 on Postoffice and 22nd Streets amid the historic charm of Galveston in the Downtown Cultural Arts District. Over the past 20 years our reputation has grown to be one the best juried events on the Gulf Coast.We generally have 8-10,000 attendees. The Island's hospitality and the relaxed atmosphere provide a beautiful outdoor setting in which to enjoy a weekend of fine art and fun!
ARToberFEST donates free booth space to local high school and college art students, to enable them to obtain valuable experience in the real world of creating, marketing, and selling their artwork. All proceeds from ARToberFEST will benefit educational programs at The Grand 1894 Opera House.
