In our short history, this contemporary fine art show has been host to some of the best independent fine artists and contemporary craftsmen on the road today. Hopefully, you have heard great things about our stunning venue, our hospitality and even our record - breaking heat! That's why this awesome show has made the decision to move up seven weeks to the cooler month of April! Now you can show and sell your work in Mississippi as part of your southern route with some of the Texas spring shows and/or Atlanta and New Orleans shows.
We are continuing to work hard to promote this event across the southeast and to create an exceptional show experience for you. Our significant award money is given to the best in each category by a respected local juror. The show is located next to a fine hotel with special show rates for the artists and parking is easily accessible. Both are within easy walking distance from the show site.
The Renaissance Fine Arts Festival is presented by the Ridgeland Tourism Commission, a tax-exempt, state-chartered agency. All festival proceeds are used to produce and promote the show.
We look forward to having you and your artwork in Mississippi!
