Get Involved

There are many ways for individuals, groups, and businesses to get involved with the festival.


Many festival components, including performances, competitions & exhibitions, and art & craft vendors are managed through an application process. Applications are available here.


The North Charleston Arts Fest is a highly anticipated arts and culture event offering an excellent promotional and public relations opportunity for businesses seeking media exposure, direct contact with festival patrons, and a viable contribution to the arts.  On-site marketing opportunities at two principal events – the Arty Block Party and World Arts Expo – are available to businesses/organizations with options that include distribution of print materials, display of banners/signage, or vendor space/special display area. Additionally, businesses have the opportunity to have their ad appear in 35,000 Arts Fest program booklets. Revenue generated through ad placement helps to offset the cost of printing, freeing up more of the festival budget to be applied to programming. Click here for more details.


The magnitude of this project requires enormous support from the community, especially our awesome volunteers. There are several volunteer opportunities before and during the festival for individuals and groups. Click here for details.
