Fine & Fresh ARtists

We are proud to bring Q-Fest to the tri-state region, where patrons show their appreciation for art and artists. Q-Fest committee members, staff and volunteers work year-round to promote the event to potential artists, community patrons/sponsors and tourists. It's because of strong financial support within the community, and new partnerships, that Q-Fest is able to market the event to a tri-state region that includes over 600,000 people within 75 miles.

Q-Fest Fine & Fresh art show is located in a beautiful shady park in the heart of our vibrant downtown. Easy access and flow to and within the park directs patrons into the 50+ artists booths comfortably situated within generous 10’x10β€² spaces. Complementing the sale of fine art is free hands-on art activities, a local food court, entertainment, including very popular Blues in the District concert on Friday night and District Street Dance Saturday evening.

The Fine & Fresh art exhibition and sale includes approximately 50+ artists chosen by a five-member panel of jurors including arts professionals. Many of our artists have so enjoyed the atmosphere, community, volunteers and sales that a mix of new and returning artists continue to apply each year. Artist exit surveys each year praise our volunteers for the excellent service and hospitality provided to our artists – we go above and beyond! WE LOVE ARTISTS!
