The Overlea ArtsFest is a family-friendly annual arts festival and juried art show organized by the Overlea Community Association to celebrate the visual & performing arts, and to promote local artists and their work.
Artists of all genres and all levels of experience are welcome to submit their work to compete for prizes in up to nine different juried categories.
The Overlea ArtsFest is (normally) held on the first Saturday of June each year, from 10 AM til 6 PM. Because of COVID-19, the event will be postponed until August 15. A week-long virtual event will celebrate our artists, performers and community. The call for artists is now open, with more information below.
It is FREE to attend the festival, partake in the activities and enjoy the performances. Artists are not charged a fee to submit their work for the juried show, nor are they charged a commission on any work sold during the show, which makes ArtsFest a very “pro-artist” event. The goal of the ArtsFest Committee is to provide a respectful and joyful experience for both the artists and the performers, as well as the attendees of the event.
