Art League of Henderson County in Hendersonville, NC, Offers 43rd ArtFest on Main

Visit for the first time, or come back to Western North Carolina's beautiful cool mountains for the best outdoor Art Fair in the Southeast. Artists and visitors have been return-ing for 42 years to enjoy ArtFest (formerly Sidewalk Art Show), which is one of the top 100 outdoor art fairs in the country in Hendersonville, NC. Artfest will be Aug. 2 & 3, rain or shine.

There is free admission and parking for all visitors interested in original fine art and prints of original art works. More than 100 regionally and nationally recognized artists are participating. You may purchase a wide range of beautiful original art work in styles from abstract to representational, in oil, pastel, watercolor and mixed mediums, presented at prices making them excellent values.

An artist competition will award more than $1,500. to the top paintings and photographs submitted by participating artists.

Artist demonstrations are planned through the weekend to add to your enjoyment. Take advantage of this opportunity to watch artists create beautiful paintings and to talk directly to them about their artistic endeavors.

Main Street will be closed to vehicles so you can stroll leisurely through the artists' booths and quaint Historic Downtown Hendersonville shops in safety. Experience in person the friendliness and warm southern hospitality for which we're famous.

ArtFest on Main is a wonderful day trip for the family living close enough to Hendersonville, NC, but you might want to reserve a room in one of our great B&B's or motels because it will be hard to leave after just a day in the mountains.

Enjoy gorgeous mountain vistas, waterfalls and streams, fantastic sunsets, friendly people, beautiful historic downtown Hendersonville and The 43rd Annual Artfest On Main.

For info check our NC Institutional Gallery listings or call 828/698-9649 or 828/694-3773.
