Festive Art


The finest artists and crafts people from around the country will merge into an artistic circle in the Discovery District for the Columbus Arts Festival, June 5th – 7th.

Surrounded by the Columbus Museum of Art and the Columbus College of Art and Design, the area will once again be transformed into a breathtaking outdoor gallery where you can admire and shop for paintings, sculpture, woodwork, pottery and more.  

Think you’ve got a little creativity to share? Throw clay pots, blow glass, or create a journal for a patient at a local hospital. All of that and more can be done in the Hands-on Art Activities area for adults.  Children can also get in on the fun and leave with a little work of art for themselves.

In addition to hosting over 250 nationally acclaimed artists, the Festival will feature live rock, jazz, country and funk acts from around the country.  And on Saturday and Sunday, the Club Stage showcases local community acts including groups specializing in tap, square and belly dance. Choral groups and ethnic dance troupes are also going to be featured.
