Orange Beach Festival of Art
March 12 - March 13
For 48 years, the Festival of Art has been our city’s first rite of spring — and this year, you can expect even more artistic wonders, stunning performances and family fun. The Orange Beach Festival of Art is set for March 12-13, 2022 and will feature more than 100 local and regional fine artists of visual, performing and culinary arts.
The Festival is a fine arts, juried event held every second weekend in March on the grounds of the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach and Waterfront Park on Canal Road. Festival hours are Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is completely free with public parking located at Orange Beach City Hall and the Island Church. Shuttles will be provided at a rate of $5 round trip. No public parking will be available on site.
With more than 100 artists working in a dazzling variety of mediums, festival-goers always have plenty to see, hear, touch, and taste as art vendors, musical performers and artist demonstrations deliver a multitude of sensory experiences.
Visual artists were specially selected for this show and present only the highest quality art in their respective mediums. Works in acrylic, oil, watercolor, glass, pottery, wood, jewelry and more will be displayed and sold during the event.
The Music Stage will include Roman Street, Platinum Premier Duo, and the Groovinators, among others. The Performing Arts stage will also host a number of local group talents.
Culinary selections featured at the festival offer gourmet flair, while still providing plenty of child-friendly options. This year enjoy a meal from Bleus Burgers, Cosmos/Cobalt restaurants, and Villaggio/Yo Ho Rum & Tacos restaurants.
Kid’s Art Alley offers young festival goers plenty of hands-on fun with high quality crafts.
