A juried and curated artistic event in celebration of the Month of the Arts…
Celebrate Georgetown’s inaugural South Main Arts Festival dedicated to the fine arts and located in the new South Main Arts District – a project that received Cultural District grant funding from the Texas Commission on the Arts. Shop the juried artist booths for a variety of artistic media while viewing the yarn bomb installation that was designed and created by Preservation Georgetown, the Knitting Cup, and passionate fiber artists and volunteers from the community! Enjoy food trucks, live music and ribbon dancers throughout the day, kids arts activities and pottery by Cordovan Art School…and an outdoor theatrical performance, too. The evening’s live music headliner is Texas Commission on the Arts Touring Roster Artist, Sue Foley, so be sure to join us for her performance at 5pm!
The City of Georgetown’s Water Conservation Team is looking to bring awareness to sustainable watering resources with the vibrant addition of art to rain barrels. The first annual Painted Rain Barrel Project will coincide with the Georgetown Arts and Culture Program’s Autumn Art Stroll, South Main Arts Festival, and the Water Conservation Team’s “Imagine a Day Without Water” events in October 2022.
The barrels will be displayed around City facilities and local businesses downtown, before and during the South Main Arts Festival. All painted barrels will be available to purchase via a silent auction that will run through the course of the Autumn Art Stroll and South Main Arts Festival.
