We are just a few weeks away from the 2021 Carmel International Arts Festival and we are so looking forward to all of the extremely talented artists, delicious food, children activities, and various vendors, and our awesome street concert on Saturday night, ART ROCKS!

Thank you all who supported our artists online this year, and to those who over these years have purchased art from the Artists and food from our food vendors! Our community appreciates you! We look forward to seeing you in 2021 for our 23rd in-person event!

On Saturday night the Arts & Design District will be rocks to the music of a popular, local band at what we call ART ROCKS!, the largest street party in the Art & Design District, from 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM. ART ROCKS! is a free, family-friendly, community event that you will not want to miss.

COVID-19 Response

The Carmel International Arts Festival is following all recommendations regarding COVID-19 from our local health and government officials. We will be offering hand sanitizer stations throughout the festival, and will have masks available at our information booth for patrons if needed. We are grateful that we are able to hold our festival in an outdoor, open air location, and we encourage artists who have tents with panels to create signs asking patrons to wear masks inside their tents. There will also be signage throughout the festival to encourage patrons to wear masks when in close proximity to others while shopping and enjoying the festival.
