The 2nd Annual ArtFest is coming to downtown Nacogdoches on Saturday, September 18th, 2021 from 11am - 4pm. The event is brought you by the Nacogdoches Arts Collaborative.

There will be arts and craft vendors set up all over downtown. Bring the kids; there will be tons of activities for them to get involved in.

Live music is something we can all look forward to at ArtFest.  There will be musicians and performers of all types at the event.

ArtFest 2019

The fact that ArtFest happened at all in it's inaugural year in 2019 is amazing. It's interesting to look at pictures from 2019. You just want to remember what it was like in the world pre-covid.

To get a feel for the event here is a video produced as a wrap up by the amazing Lexus Jacobs.

Here are the credits for all of the musicians shown in the video. So much amazing local talent was on display.

If you would like to be a vendor and get your own 10x10 booth, there is a signup document here.

There is always a need for art and music education here in Deep East Texas. The more we are exposed to the arts, the more well-rounded we become.
