Festival dates are Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. This juried and judged show is produced by the Arts Council of Henderson County.

The Art on Main Committee is announcing that this year’s show will be set up on Main Street for a third year. The committee has been working with the city to move the show into the street for several years. This allows for a show with a more connected layout, storage space behind booths, and a safer environment for everyone.

An application can also be requested by emailing the Arts Council at [email protected], or by calling 828-693-8504. Artists must send four images of their work plus a photo of their booth along with their applications.

The deadline for applications is May 1, 2019 (postmark).

A total of $3,000 in cash prizes will be awarded. Breakfasts, booth sitters, and a complimentary accommodations program, which provides housing for traveling artists in the homes of members of the Arts Council community.

The Arts Council has an aggressive marketing campaign planned to draw audiences from Henderson County, the broader North Carolina region, South Carolina, and Georgia. Residents and tourists alike enthusiastically look forward to this popular annual outdoor festival.

Morris Broadband is a major sponsor for this event. For further information about Art on Main, please contact the Arts Council of Henderson County at [email protected] or 828-693-8504. The web address is www.acofhc.org.
