Welcome to Art on the Parish Green Festival in Historic Downtown New Albany.
Art on the Parish Green will celebrate its 12th year in 2018. Art on the Parish Green brings together the best in handmade arts and crafts from artists all across the Southern Indiana and Kentucky area. This year over 90 artists will have been juried into this premier regional art festival! Visitors to the festival can purchase items from artists and craftspeople who have exhibited at shows such as St. James, Cherokee Triangle, Art in the Arbor, and Chautauqua. We try to have something to suit every visitor's taste and pocket book!
Other activities during Art on the Parish Green weekend will include live music featuring jazz, bluegrass and some old time favorites. The Jamey Aebersold Jazz Quartet will treat festival goers to its own special brand of jazz as headliners on Saturday afternoon and Fresh Cut Grass, a professional bluegrass & gospel group, takes the musical stage on Sunday afternoon as the headliner. Check the festival music schedule for details on all the great groups that will be playing all weekend.
Enjoy delicious food including all of the favorite summertime festival treats. Pulled pork or chicken, hot dogs, specialty tacos, and much more will be available at the Festival Food Court. There's even a beer/wine garden with New Albany’s finest beer from The New Albanian Brewing Company and wine from River City Winery.
Family friendly activities abound at the YMCA of Southern Indiana's Kids' Art Place. Children (and adults!) can create their own craft masterpiece to take home.Games and art opportunities will be available, as will face painting! Grab some sidewalk chalk to contribute an original masterpiece. Special visits are scheduled with clowns, balloon animals, and for Silly Safari and their amazing real life animals (pet them if you dare!).
