Become An Artfest Sponsor

Artfest 2019 Poster

The Port Aransas Art Center hosts Artfest annually in May over Memorial Day Weekend. This year’s Artfest occurs Saturday and Sunday, May 25 and 26, 2019.

Artfest features a wide range of artists and fine arts in all mediums, a kids’ creative zone, a variety of food vendors, and musical venues including stage performances and street musicians.

In 2018, we moved Artfest to the heart of Port Aransas at Jerry McDonald Field, located just one block from the Art Center, directly across from American Bank on S. Alister Street. Approximately 1,800 visitors attended, and we expect numbers to grow as the Coastal Bend continues to recover from Hurricane Harvey. Entrance to the event is only $5 per person (cash only), and children aged 12 and younger are free. A two-day Artfest pass may be acquired for $8.
