HUNTSVILLE – Prepare for an exquisite blend of nature’s beauty and artistic creativity at this year’s Monte Sano Art Festival, presented by Damson Automotive, on Sept. 16 and 17, 2023, at Monte Sano State Park. A Huntsville tradition, the juried art festival will feature a new expanded festival layout showcasing over 140 local and regional artists and welcome select local food vendors and featured musicians.

“Allowing patrons to discover a diverse array of artistry from local, regional and national talents amidst the picturesque backdrop of Huntsville’s state park is what makes the Monte Sano Art Festival truly exceptional,” said Allison Dillon-Jauken, the Executive Director of Arts Huntsville. “As a juried showcase, our festival highlights professional artists who have been handpicked from a competitive pool. From mesmerizing jewelry to intricate clay pieces, expressive paintings to captivating sculptures, this event promises to captivate both first-time buyers and seasoned collectors.”

Celebrating September’s Music Month, the festival will feature 12 local musicians on two stages presented by United Community. Additionally, there will be a special performance of Opera Bytes Live from Opera Huntsville on Saturday at 4 p.m. 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.
