The Columbus Arts Festival has grown into one of the most highly acclaimed arts festivals in the nation!
We will be featuring over 200 visual artists, three stages of performances and dozens of food vendors. Produced by staff with the help of over 80 year-round volunteers and hundreds of weekend volunteers, the Columbus Arts Festival attracts the nation’s top artists as well as art enthusiasts from all over the country. No public money funds the Arts Festival. However, the event remains FREE as always to attend, thanks to your donations, space fees and the Festival’s many generous sponsors!
Check here in the spring to find information about getting to and parking at the Arts Fest!
The Columbus Arts Festival is a great place for people but not for pets. Heat and crowded conditions make the Arts Festival a stressful and potentially unhealthy place for animal companions. We love pets too, and that’s why we ask that you please leave yours at home.
If you are planning a trip to Columbus for the Columbus Arts Festival, we hope you’ll consider our hotel partners, which will be announced in the spring.
You can also visit Experience Columbus’ hotel page, where you can search by hotel name, type or neighborhood.
Artist demonstrations, hands-on art activities for kids, you name it! The Columbus Arts Festival Activities Schedule will be posted in the spring.
Great food is one of the highlights of the Columbus Arts Festival, from tasty barbecue to lobster tacos to buckets of chocolate chip cookies. Food vendor offerings will be posted in the spring.
