The Jacksonville-Onslow Council for the Arts is gearing up for our third annual Art Block festival! Make sure to mark your calendars for April 29, 2017 so you can check it out. We’ll be taking over the 800 block of downtown Jacksonville (near City Hall and the Freedom Fountain), so there’s plenty of space for all of our activities!

Been looking for a gift for that special someone? Or maybe a gift for yourself for making it through the winter months? Shop local as you meander through dozens of arts and crafts vendors lining both sides of the block. You’ll find a variety of fine arts, clothing, books, homemade soaps and bath salts, kids’ crafts, and more!

Need a break from browsing awesome, handmade products? Grab a quick fuel up from one of the delicious local food trucks! While you’re eating, take a load off and tune in to the main stage, where we’ll be featuring local musical performances all throughout the day.

This is one you won’t want to miss. Save the date for Art Block 2017 – April 29, 2017 from 10 AM to 4 PM – 800 block of downtown Jacksonville. Make sure to download a flyer so you can invite your friends and family to come along!
