The St. James Court Art Show is held in the beautiful neighborhood of Historic Old Louisville, just south of Central Park on St. James Court, Belgravia Court, Magnolia Avenue, Third Street and Fourth Street. Old Louisville has been named "One of the Great Places of America" by the American Planning Association, and it boasts the largest contiguous collection of Victorian mansions in the United States. Old Louisville is approximately 3 miles south of downtown Louisville and just 3 blocks north of The University of Louisville. During the show, all streets within the event perimeter are closed to vehicular traffic.

Consistently ranked as one of the top fine art and craft shows in the country, the St. James Court Art Show attracts more than 250,000 visitors annually from all across the nation who come to purchase unique handcrafted items directly from the hands that crafted them. We take great pride in the focus and importance we place on our participating artists. Our team works hard year-round to ensure that the show remains to the level of expectations that our artists and guests deserve. A total of $10,000 in awards is presented by the jurors to be awarded to artists where excellence is determined.

Held annually on the first full weekend of October, the St. James Court Art Show has been running continuously since 1957. There are six sections of the art show. Each section is responsible for its own exhibit space/exhibitors, which total approximately 650 artists spread over four blocks. The St. James Court Art Show is produced by a consortium of neighborhood groups.
Louisville crowd"I LOVE the Saint James Court Art show. Tucked in among the historic brick homes, the location couldn't be more picturesque. You drive right to your booth for load-in and out. Boxed lunch, water, snacks, booth sitters, and a fantastic awards party round out the amenities. The crowds come in droves, and they come to spend."

"St. James has consistently been one of my best shows for over 20 years. The organization, advertising and treatment of artists is stellar."

"Out of all of the shows that I traveled to, this was the only show where I could see myself potentially selling pieces for $10,000+. Any other show, I would have been hesitant to have any price tag over a few thousand. My second year, I am only doing three shows. St James made that cut. One of my top shows that I hope to do every year."
The St. James Court Art Show exists
to connect our artists with art enthusiasts.
