Admit it, you’re just as excited as we are!
Join us in celebrating the return of the Columbus Arts Festival for the 62nd year, at the downtown riverfront.
Showcase Your Art!
Learn more about how to participate in the Columbus Arts Festival.
Transform the riverfront into a spectacular outdoor gallery as a juried artist, a Big Local Artist and more.
Add to the vibrancy of the Columbus Arts Festival by taking the stage as a musician, dancer, theatre group or spoken word artist.
Many thanks to our 2023 corporate and community partners for their support.
The Arts Festival is produced without any public dollars—we couldn’t do it without our sponsors!
