High art: Monte Sano Art Festival coming this weekend

HUNTSVILLE – Breathtaking views and outdoor fun will complement one-of-a-kind artwork at this year’s Monte Sano Art Festival. The annual event is Saturday and Sunday at Monte Sano State Park and presented by Damson Automotive.

The Huntsville tradition is a juried art festival presenting more than 130 local and regional artists. There will also be select local food vendors and featured musicians.

Monte Sano Art Festival will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

“Monte Sano Art Festival is a great opportunity to shop from a wide array of local, regional and national artists while also enjoying Huntsville’s state park,” said Allison Dillon-Jauken, executive director of Arts Huntsville. “As a juried art show, each year we feature exceptional professional artists who were selected from all of our applicants as the best in their medium.

“From jewelry to clay and painting to sculpture, the festival showcases art that will appeal to both first-time buyers and long-time collectors.”

Food trucks will be on-site for al fresco dining on picnic tables throughout the food and beverage areas.

There will be live music and a special performance of Opera Bytes Live from Opera Huntsville on Saturday at 4 p.m.

Arts Huntsville does not charge admission to the festival. However, Monte Sano State Park will charge $10 per car for parking or $5 per walk-in attendee, cash only. All funds go toward supporting the state parks system.
