Sponsored by the Village Art Club of Bella Vista, all proceeds from the Bella Vista Arts & Crafts Festival are used for substantial art scholarships for promising young artists, donations to children's art programs, continuing education for artists/artisans, and our Festival partnering organizations--who in turn use these funds to support others in our community.
BELLA VISTA ARTS & CRAFTS FESTIVAL
October 19-21, 2017
8am – 5pm
Taking place during the 3rd weekend in October, our juried Festival has grown to nearly 300 artisans at our large, convenient Festival site on Arkansas Highway 279 in Bella Vista, just south of the intersection with Arkansas Hwy 340.
According to news reports, customer and exhibitor comments, the Festival is now the premier art & crafts show in Northwest Arkansas! We’re one of the few remaining juried festivals in the area, requiring that all items on sale be handmade by the artisan.
Exhibitors and food vendors have come to expect the friendly and organized atmosphere that we provide. Our 200+ Festival volunteers go out of their way to make our vendors and thousands of visitors comfortable and happy. Our Club and community volunteers are the key to this very successful fundraising event for the Village Art Club.
The physical address of the Festival is: 1991 Forest Hills Boulevard, Bella Vista AR 72715
