This is the major annual fundraiser in support of the Allen Arts Alliance which is a consortium of arts and culture organizations in Allen, Fairview and Lucas.

This family-friendly festival features a wide variety of free events including; interactive art experiences, music, dance and entertainment. The festival attracts a diverse group of fine art exhibitors from all over the country.

The festival also showcases a wide variety of artistic performances, interactive children’s art related activities and delicious food and drink options available through the wide variety of restaurants at Watters Creek.

The festival has become a can’t miss event for art lovers, art collectors and locals who love this annual celebration of the arts and culture in our community.
