Upper Arlington Labor Day Arts Festival

The annual Labor Day Arts Festival is a one-day blind-juried arts festival celebrating over 50 years of creativity and will be held on Monday, September 4, 2018.  Hosted by the City of Upper Arlington, the Festival draws over 25,000 people each year and is the City’s signature event.  Located in the beautiful neighborhood setting of Northam Park, the Festival showcases the works of local, regional, and national artists working in a variety of media.  Artists return to our festival each year because they prefer a one-day festival format, enjoy robust sales, a knowledgeable and art-enthusiastic audience, and are well cared for by our volunteers.  A variety of activities add to the Festival’s success as a family-oriented event: an Entertainment Stage with local performers playing all day, an Art Activities Area with performances and arts/crafts activities for children and adults and a variety of refreshment booths.  Nearly 200 volunteers make this community event possible.
