For more than 40 years, the Festival of Art has been our island's first rite of spring. It is a celebration of visual, performing, musical and culinary arts. With more than 100 artists working in a dazzling variety of medias, festival-goers always have plenty to see, hear, touch, taste and experience.
This fine arts festival is completely FREE with music and entertainment featured on two stages.
Satellite public parking is available with shuttle will be provided by BRATS for a $5 daily rate.
Parking this year is at the Orange Beach Sportsplex off Canal Road, 2 miles west of the festival grounds.
