For more than six decades, artists and crafters from across the southeastern United States have made their way to the North Alabama town of Guntersville to display their works of art and unique creations for two days in April. Art on the Lake will once again be held alongside beautiful Lake Guntersville, featuring many fine artists and craftsmen. In addition to arts and crafts, festival-goers will be treated to food vendors, outdoor games, rides and a bakeshop.
Now in its 61st year, Art on the Lake is a family-friendly festival with a huge offering of artwork, handmade crafts and one-of-a-kind items from over 80 artists and craftsmen. The event features nationally recognized, as well as emerging, local artists. For those who are not able to shop in person, a virtual artist gallery will be available.
During the festival, members of the Twenty-First Century Club will have homemade desserts, including a variety of cakes, cookies and pies, available to purchase. Plenty of entertainment in the form of inflatables, a bungee jumper and carnival type games will provide hours of enjoyment for kids.
Set for April 23-24, 2022, Art on the Lake is held at the Guntersville Recreation Center, located at 1500 Sunset Drive. Hours are Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $2 for ages 13 and older. The event is held rain or shine. No animals allowed.
Sponsored by the Twenty-First Century Club of Guntersville, Art on the Lake promotes the arts while benefiting a scholarship program for local high school graduates and other student/youth-oriented endeavors.
