The North Charleston Arts Fest is a highly anticipated arts and culture event offering an excellent promotional and public relations opportunity for businesses seeking 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 our 38th year, we’re poised to continue offering exciting programming that engages, educates, and inspires patrons from all walks of life 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 five-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, businesses, and parks. The variety of festival offerings and the inclusiveness of the event have become a point of pride for our city. Grants, sponsorships, and fees collected for marketing opportunities 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.

In 2020, we are excited to introduce an option for businesses and organizations to focus on establishing more personal and targeted connections through on-site marketing at two of the festival’s principal events – the Arty Block Party and the World Arts Expo at Riverfront Park

Additionally, we are continuing to offer the 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.
