The North Charleston Arts Fest features five days of events highlighting more than 100 national, regional and local artists and performers in the areas of Dance, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts, Media Arts, and Literature. Residents and visitors from throughout the Southeast and beyond are invited to experience a diverse array of free and modestly priced performances, workshops, exhibitions, and activities in a variety of venues, including libraries, businesses, community centers, and parks. The festival schedule offers something for everyone, including concerts, theatre presentations, children’s programs, film screenings, lectures, readings, workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions, public art installations, and much more.
In response to CDC & SCDHEC recommendations regarding public assembly and the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 North Charleston Arts Fest has been cancelled.
Unfortunately, there are too many components and too many artists, vendors, site hosts, etc. involved to replicate the festival in full at a later date. The National Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition and the African American Fiber Art Exhibition will be postponed (dates TBD).
