Art Block Festival
APRIL 29, 2017 from 10AM – 4PM
An annual day-long festival held in downtown Jacksonville, Art Block features local and regional arts and crafts, live music, theatrical and other performances. In addition to providing the community and visitors to our area a great way to interact with the arts and artists, you’ll also see food trucks, face-painting and kid-friendly make-and-take crafts.
Art Block is also where a 3 Day Plein-Air Paint-out is judged, awards are presented and a WET PAINT sale is conducted right on the street!
This year, we’re also bringing back our popular Chairity event! We’re inviting everyone to upcycle an old chair and donate it to be sold in a silent auction. The proceeds will help the Council for the Arts continue to create fun and unique programs for all artists and art-lovers in Onslow County! Find more information in our Chairity Application!
Art Block is a great way to spend the day celebrating the arts and having fun with your friends and family. Join us again on April 29, 2017 from 10 AM to 4 PM for the 3rd Annual Art Block festival!
