Come and pick up some food from one of the great restaurants on Main Street or make a selection from one of the many food and beverage trucks that will be there for the Festival.
The Festival has grown considerably from that first year around Carmel City Square. In 2019 there will be over 130 juried artists exhibiting in 2D, 3D, Ceramics, Fiber, Glass, Jewelry, Painting, Photography, and Wood. We look forward to welcoming you to the Festival and seeing you at ART ROCKS!
Carmel International Arts Festival is presented by The City of Carmel and Current Publishing. This is a free, family-friendly Festival, that is open to the public. Free parking is available at Carmel High School. For those who wish to Bike Carmel, Pedal and Park bike valet will be available near the Monon trail.
If you want to sign up to be a volunteer for a minimum 2-hour shift during the weekend of the Festival, we need your help. Volunteers are the backbone of the Carmel International Arts Festival and the difference between an excellent volunteer program, and a great one is that the volunteers have a wonderful time while they are working for the event. It takes a “village” to produce the Carmel International Arts Festival each year. Your help is welcome and greatly appreciated. By volunteering YOU are helping the Festival carry out its mission to educate, expose, and provide access to the community all forms of art while generating a heightened appreciation of the arts.
