Our 21st Annual Carmel International Arts Festival was a fantastic success! Besides all the extremely talented artists, delicious food, children activities, and various vendors, we were proud to present ART ROCKS!

Thank you all who attended our Festival over these years and purchased art from the Artists and food from our food vendors! Our community appreciates you! We look forward to seeing you in 2019 for our 22nd event!

On Saturday, September 28 from 10 AM – 7 PM and Sunday, September 29 from 11 AM – 5 PM Main Street and Rangeline Road will be lined with Artists from all over the country for the 22nd annual Carmel International Arts Festival. On Saturday night the Arts & Design District will be rocking to the music of “The Bishops.” ART ROCKS!, the largest street party in the Art & Design District, is back from 7 PM – 10 PM.
