Memphis art and music events are part of what shapes our city. And investing in them is part of what shapes us! That’s why we’re excited and proud to be the presenting sponsor of this year’s RiverArtsFest.
Come to South Main on October 23rd, 24th, & 25th for the 2015 RiverArtsFest, the largest outdoor juried artist market and urban street festival in the Mid-South. Now in it’s 9th year, this celebration features original fine arts, real Memphis music, great southern food and activities for all ages.
A Juried Artist Market will present a variety of fine art from over 170 national and regional artists including paintings, glass, photography, ceramics, wearable art, toys, metal and jewelry. Visit demonstration areas, where local and regional artists will be creating works of art while interacting with the public. You’ll be able to watch artists ply their creative skills in painting, sculpture, metalwork, calligraphy, wheel pottery, woodturning and fused glass. And don’t miss the ‘Hands on Art’ interactive art station where you can express and explore your own creative energies!
Music can be heard from 3 performance stages (over 30 live performances are lined up) and strolling musicians during the festival. Representing a broad sampling of the great music being made in our region, from established names to fresh faces, you will experience Memphis music at its best!
On Friday evening enjoy FREE admission and a free concert, Rockin’ River Arts Show, featuring Motel Mirrors, Marcella and Her Lovers, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.
Beer and wine booths will be offered at four locations, plus there will be a great selection of delicious food from local vendors, along with some of your festival favorites.
Sound like a great time? We think so too! Hope to see you there!
