Monte Sano Art Festival welcomes over 130 area artists to the state park next month

The annual visual arts festival will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, and Sunday, Sept. 11

HUNTSVILLE – Breathtaking views and outdoor fun will complement one-of-a-kind artwork at this year’s Monte Sano Art Festival, presented by Damson Automotive, on Sept. 10 and 11, 2022, at Monte Sano State Park. A Huntsville tradition, the juried art festival will present over 130 local and regional artists and welcome select local food vendors and featured musicians.

Monte Sano Art Festival will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11. Arts Huntsville does not charge admission to the festival; however, Monte Sano State Park will charge $10 per car for parking or $5 per walk-in festival attendee, cash only. All funds go towards supporting the state parks system.

“Monte Sano Art Festival is a great opportunity to shop from a wide array of local, regional and national artists while also enjoying Huntsville’s state park,” said Allison Dillon-Jauken, executive director of Arts Huntsville. “As a juried art show, each year we feature exceptional professional artists who were selected from all of our applicants as the best in their medium. From jewelry to clay and painting to sculpture, the festival showcases art that will appeal to both first-time buyers and long-time collectors.”

Local food trucks will be present throughout the weekend, and attendees will be able to dine al fresco on picnic tables placed throughout the food and beverage areas. Local musicians will perform during the weekend, and there will be a special performance of Opera Bytes Live from Opera Huntsville on Saturday at 4 p.m. A full list of food trucks and musicians can be found on the Monte Sano Art Festival page on the Arts Huntsville website.

This year’s festival is presented by Damson Automotive, with additional support from All of Us Research Program, Torch Technologies, and COLSA.
