Panoply is the Southeast‘s premier arts weekend where Huntsville’s innovative spark shines through a festival of art, music and more!

Arts Huntsville is so excited to bring back its in-person, three-day arts festival to in Huntsville’s Big Spring Park April 23 – 25!

A Taste of Panoply, a scaled-back version of the annual arts festival, offers the community a much-needed opportunity to interact while celebrating and supporting the arts community safely. 

 

This year’s three-day festival welcomes 15 musical performances by local and regional talent to the Panoply Showcase Stage and art from over 100 visual artists from various mediums to the fan-favorite Art Marketplace. On Saturday and Sunday, festivalgoers can experience live art demonstrations at the Arts In Action tents, interact with strolling characters and take photos at the festival’s interactive art installations, and grab their free STEAM and Creativity Corner activities to continue the festival experience at home! 

 

Friday night’s $20 ticketed preview event includes musical performances by the Lamont Landers Band and the award-winning duo The War And Treaty. Additionally, Friday night attendees have first access to shop the Art Marketplace and a front-row seat to the fireworks show over Big Spring Park. 

 

Saturday and Sunday’s Panoply events are free to the public, but a donation of $10 or more per adult to Arts Huntsville to support festival programming is welcomed and encouraged! 

Hours:
Friday, April 23 from 5:00pm – 9:00pm
