Monte Sano Art Festival returns this weekend

HUNTSVILLE – Breathtaking views and COVID-19 precautions will complement one-of-a-kind artwork at Monte Sano State Park, Sept. 12 and 13 at Arts Huntsville’s Monte Sano Art Festival,

A Huntsville-area tradition, the juried art festival will present a scaled down version to facilitate social distancing while still showcasing an array of wonderful local and regional visual artists. Along with the outdoor festival exhibitors, 2020 will welcome select local food vendors and featured musicians.

Monte Sano Art Festival will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 13. Arts Huntsville does not charge admission to the festival; however, Monte Sano State Park will charge $10 per car for parking, cash only. Walk-in festival attendees will be charged $5 per person for entrance into the state park with all funds going toward supporting the state parks system.

“Monte Sano Art Festival will look a bit different this year, but at its heart it still celebrates and supports area artists and our beautiful Monte Sano State Park,” said Allison Dillon-Jauken, Executive Director of Arts Huntsville. “This year the festival will incorporate new measures to accommodate socially distanced art shopping. Our professional artists are all small businesses, and the outdoor setting on Monte Sano Mountain is an ideal venue to discover new artwork in every medium from painting to pottery, woodworking, jewelry and more. Both established art collectors and first-time collectors are sure to find something that speaks to them!”

Attendees will be able to dine al fresco on picnic tables that have been spread out throughout the food and beverage area in the middle of the event.
