You are invited to apply to showcase and sell your work at the Vandergriff Art Festival in Arlington, Texas.
Vandergriff Art Festival is a three-day outdoor art festival held at Vandergriff Park, one of Arlington's largest city parks.
Vandergriff Art Festival replaces Art on the Greene Art Festival, Arlington's longest running fine art festival. After 8 years at Richard Greene Linear Park in the Entertainment District, construction has forced us to move to a new location.
Everything artists have come to know and appreciate about Art on the Greene will remain the same. Our dedication to host a fine art festival in Arlington will simply transfer to a new location. We will continue to bring knowledgeable art loving attendees into the festival to buy and see quality art from local, regional and national artists on April 30-May 2, 2021.
In addition to the quality art, patrons will also enjoy live entertainment from local and regional bands performing all weekend to help create a well rounded event for all to enjoy.
