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. During the annual festival we are joined by thousands of residents and visitors from throughout the Southeast to enjoy a vast array of arts and cultural offerings that are both affordable and accessible. Now entering its 38th year, we’re poised to continue implementing exciting changes to the festival that guarantee quality offerings and improvement of the patron experience and we invite you to join us!

The North Charleston Arts Fest has matured into one of the most comprehensive arts festivals in the state of South Carolina with a multi-day schedule that offers something for everyone, including concerts, theatre presentations, film screenings, children’s programs, workshops and demonstrations, exhibitions, public art installations, and much more. The festival attracts more than 30,000 patrons each year and features over 100 national, regional, and local artists showcasing their talents in a variety of venues, including libraries, community centers, schools, and parks. The variety of festival offerings and the inclusiveness of the event have become a point of pride for our city. Monetary and in-kind contributions, as well as fees collected for tabling and promotional opportunities during festival events, help us to present performances and activities at little or no cost to the public, helping to uphold the festival’s mission of making unique arts experiences accessible to people of all demographics and economic backgrounds.

Tabling and other on-site promotional opportunities begin at just $250 and offer a variety of marketing benefits to involve your company in a memorable community event. Other available benefits include exposure in local and regional print and broadcast media; visibility on the event website and social media platforms, signage, marketing materials, and apparel; and more.

Additionally, there is an opportunity to place ads in the printed Arts Fest program booklet. A total of 35,000 booklets are printed for the public to reference for details on the fabulous array of programs and activities offered throughout the event, giving businesses and organizations a targeted, cost effective medium to reach a broad and captive audience.
