The Spring into Arts Festival committee is currently accepting applications for the 2018 festival.

The festival will take place Saturday, May 12 from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in Downtown Concord and attracts artists from across the region. The centerpiece of the festival is a juried art show with artists spanning a wide variety of mediums including jewelry, ceramics, wood, painting, photography, glass and textiles.

The first deadline for applications is January 31, 2018, with an $85 application fee. After January 31, the application fee is $110. A jury selects artists for the festival based on their applications. Any artists who is not selected receives a full refund of their application fee.

Cash prizes of $500, $300, and $200 are awarded to the top three artists, with judging and awards taking place the day of the Festival. All work must be the original thought, design, and creation of the exhibitor.

The Spring Into Arts Festival is an annual family-friendly event in Downtown Concord that showcases and promotes the visual and performing arts. Enjoy the juried art show, musical entertainment, locally crafted beer & wine, fantastic food, and a children's area that inspires the artistic side of all of us!
