Monte Sano Art Festival for Kids

Arts Huntsville’s annual Monte Sano Art Festival has been an enjoyed tradition in Huntsville, Alabama for sixteen years. This year it will continue to feature more than 140 of the region’s finest artists in an array of wonderful media. New this year, and much to the delight of art-loving parents and kids, Spirited Art is offering art activities for families. Parents can enjoy the art while their kids create it – brilliant! There’s also the very kid-friendly state park playground and beautiful hiking trails to enjoy while you’re there for the festival.

Along with the outdoor festival exhibitors, the 2017 Monte Sano Art Festival will also continue to feature local food trucks and musicians throughout the state park. This festival is always a highlight of the arts calendar, and a fun way to be outdoors supporting local artists.
