REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

The Charles County Arts Alliance is pleased to announce our 25th annual ArtsFest, to be held on Saturday, June 10, 2017, from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, on the beautiful grounds of the La Plata Town Hall, in La Plata, Maryland. ArtsFest is the largest arts festival in Charles County, and one of the largest in Southern Maryland. This is our sixth year to present the festival in partnership with the Town of La Plata.

ArtsFest is our annual outdoor celebration of all the arts and artists – visual, literary and performing. It is our “free gift” to the citizens of Charles County and Southern Maryland, and there is no charge for the public to attend. It is a family-friendly, wonderful way to kick off the summer season!

Visual and literary artists of all media are invited to display and sell their works. In addition, nonprofit arts organizations are invited as exhibitors to display information and encourage participation in their performing, visual and literary arts activities. Also invited as nonprofit exhibitors are cultural, historical, heritage and environmental organizations. Local commercial organizations are also invited to distribute information on their products and services, and a variety of great good will be available for purchase throughout the day.

Our audience attendance at ArtsFest averages 2000 people each year. At last year’s ArtsFest, we presented 12 nonstop music and dance performances on two stages, 60 artists and exhibitors on display, food vendors, and a Kid’s Art Tent with a wide variety of hands-on creative projects. This year’s ArtsFest promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s!
