Participation Deadline is Approaching

(and spaces are filling up fast!)

Now is your chance to promote your business/organization and serve the community with one of our community’s favorite events — ArtsFest!

→ Reserve your spot by Saturday, March 1!


Businesses & Organizations – Get Involved! A perfect way to promote your business or organization is through hosting an ArtStop by incorporating art into a promotion. There are many unique ways businesses and organizations bring a little art to the festival! Take for example the Statesboro Connect hosting an ArtStop to craft paper hats from old editions of the newspaper. Or how about the Statesboro Humane Society having life-sized animal cutouts for children to “paint a pet!”

We welcome your new ideas to ArtsFest! But if you need help coming up with an idea, we’d be happy to assist you. In the meantime, start brainstorming ideas of your own!
