Festival of the Arts

Started in 1967, the inaugural festival was a small arts event created by the shared vision of community leaders. Today, this free event has grown into a nationally-recognized festival with 144 fine artists from across the country and the globe, entertainment on three stages, world-renowned street performers, international culinary art cuisine, and extensive programming for young people. Festival of the Arts sees 750,000 people in its six days and is orchestrated by 5,000 volunteers.
