2020 Recap:  

The Monte Sano Art Festival has been an enjoyed tradition in Huntsville, Alabama for two decades. In 2020, in order to facilitate social distancing, we will be presenting a scaled down version with approximately 100 local and regional artists in an array of wonderful media. Along with the outdoor festival exhibitors, 2020 will welcome local food trucks. 

COVID-19 Precautions:  In order to mitigate risk and adhere to best practices, we will be enforcing a mask mandate for both attendees as well as vendors (face shields can be worn as an alternative).  Those not arriving with a mask will be provided with one.  All artists will have sanitizer and you will be asked to sanitize your hands prior to touching artwork.  Many vendors will have modified their booths and we ask that a maximum of 2 visitors are in each booth at a time.  Additional sanitizer stations will be made available throughout the park.

The History of Monte Sano Art Festival

The Monte Sano Art Show originated in 1999 when Debra Simpson, an artist residing in the Monte Sano Community, wished to establish a show in an outdoor setting. With a group of friends, Debra made plans for the first show which was held on October 30, 1999 in the parking lot of the Monte Sano Assessment and Enrichment Center at 820 Monte Sano Blvd.
