South Main Arts Festival

A juried and curated artistic event in celebration of the Month of the Arts…

10 a.m.-6:30 p.m. | October 21 | Near Grace Heritage Center | 817 S Main St

Celebrate Georgetown’s 2nd Annual South Main Arts Festival dedicated to the fine arts and located in the new South Main Arts District – a project that received Cultural District grant funding from the Texas Commission on the Arts. Shop the juried artist booths for a variety of artistic media while participating in a community mural painting project! Enjoy food trucks, live music and ribbon dancers throughout the day, kids arts activities and pottery making by Cordovan Art School…and an outdoor theatrical performance, too. Visit the Georgetown Art Center to view the current Art Hop exhibit and participate in a spooky Haunted Art House pop-up visual art exhibit at Grace Chapel. The evening’s live music headliner is Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Roster Artist, Guy Forsyth, so be sure to join us for his performance at 5pm!

The City of Georgetown’s Water Conservation Team is also looking to bring awareness to sustainable watering resources with the vibrant addition of art to rain barrels. The first second annual Painted Rain Barrel Project will coincide with the Georgetown Arts and Culture Program’s Autumn Art Stroll, South Main Arts Festival, and the Water Conservation Team’s “Imagine a Day Without Water” events in October 2023.

The barrels will be displayed around City facilities and local businesses downtown, before and during the South Main Arts Festival. All painted barrels will be available to purchase via a silent auction that will run through the course of the Autumn Art Stroll and South Main Arts Festival.

Featured food vendors include Yoyo Bubble Teas, Gypsy Ice, and Jimmy Vega’s Smokehouse! Be sure to also check out the surrounding Arts District restaurants for beverages and other offerings: Sweet Lemon Kitchen, Kork Wine Bar, Lamppost Coffe, Thundercloud Subs, and District Six.
