The Arts Festival returns to the Carrollton Center for the Arts | Catch My Job


Carrollton’s Art Festival returns to the Carrollton Center for the Arts on October 8 and 9, featuring fine artists from across the United States.

“As the Center for the Arts celebrates its twentieth year, we are excited to welcome the Festival of the Arts for its nineteenth year,” said Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman. “We have visual, performing and demonstration artists and educational, hands-on activities scheduled this year.”

The two-day event takes place on the second weekend of October each year and features more than 70 visual artists, live entertainment, food trucks, youth exhibits and roving artists. The festival will also host a performance by the Carrollton Jazz Orchestra at the Adamson Square Amp, Saturday at 7 p.m. This year’s festival will feature two outdoor stages and performances at the Danny Mabry Theater. Organizers have promised several surprises over the weekend.

In the meantime, art lovers can start an art savings account by purchasing Art Bucks certificates, either by calling (770) 838-1083 or by visiting the center. Certificates can be used to purchase art during the festival. Art Box purchases include certificates and a patron award, which is presented to the artist when the patron makes the purchase. The artist will display the award in their tent and redeem the art box for cash. Art Box and Patron Award ribbons were drawn at the information booth on Saturday.
