Calling all artists, authors, and exhibitors . . . ArtsFest 2015 is coming!

The Charles County Arts Alliance is pleased to announce our 23rd annual ArtsFest, to be held on Saturday, June 13, 2015, 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.  We are pleased to be presenting ArtsFest for the fourth year 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!  Great food and Southern Maryland specialties will be available for purchase throughout the day.

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.

Our audience attendance at ArtsFest averages 2000 people each year.  At last year's ArtsFest, we presented nonstop music and dance performances on two stages, nearly 60 artists and exhibitors on display, local authors autographing their books, 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!

Time is of the essence, so please register for your booth space today and save money!  This year, we have two "early bird discounts" that end on March 31, and April 30.  The final deadline for registration is May 31.
