ArtsFest showcases fine artists hailing from all around the country in the juried art show, and talented musicians with local and regional followings. As a community-based arts organization, we seek to shine a spotlight on the many cultural assets in our community and bring fun, hands-on, free activities to all who attend.  ArtsFest is a major source of revenue for the Arts Foundation each year and with the revenues received through admission, sponsorship and other donations, provides support to our entire arts and cultural community.  To find out more about the Arts Foundation’s many programs, including our artists’ registry, arts education programs and the Court House Cultural Center, visit
