The Columbus Arts Festival returns to the downtown Riverfront area along the Scioto Mile on June 9-11, 2023.
This free art festival will feature great artists from around the country working with all types of media.
You’ll find prints, paintings, jewelry, housewares, glass art, metalworks, dance and theatre performances, film screenings, and pretty much everything else having to do with art!
Create something on your own with the Hands-On activities for all ages or check out the VR tent for some virtual reality experiences.
The festival features gourmet fare for purchase from local restaurants, food trucks, and the Big Local Beer Garden.
There is plenty of parking available around the area and the bike trail leads right to the festival.
