Call for Artists: 6th Annual Riverfront Art Festival

September 30-October 2

Columbus, Ohio

Genoa Park
150 artists

Deadline:  June 6

The Riverfront Art Festival celebrates its sixth anniversary this year. It features a picturesque setting, winding along the west bank of the Scioto River in downtown Columbus. The location is nearly synonymous with festival-going, in a city ranked by American Style Magazine as one of the
top 10 big cities for art.

While the heartbeat of the festival is its amazing selection of visual artists, the location is also home to a waterfront amphitheater, which plays host to a free performance by Opera Columbus, the season finale of Waterfire, and jazz over the course of the weekend - which helps to bring in the show's large crowds of well-heeled patrons.

The show features:
  • abundant parking
  • free electricity
  • stunning view of the city
  • free bottled water for artists, along with the artist friendly nature and ease of interaction for which By Hand has earned its reputation. 
We hope to have the opportunity to host you among the 150 artists presented at this year's Riverfront Art Festival.

Late September in Columbus is beautiful. Add in the opera and live jazz, doesn't this sound like a great place to finish up your outdoor fair season?

Does anyone have any firsthand knowledge of this show?  I have unfortunately once again tried a show that was new to me, knowing no one who had done it, and it was a complete bomb.  This one sounds good--but anyone?  Anyone?
