Calling all art lovers! Whether you’re a painting pro as good as Picasso or just love unique handmade jewelry, the Cottonwood Art Festival is for you. Bringing together over 250 of the best local, national, and international artists,  this juried art festival is traditionally  held on the first full weekends of May and October when Cottonwood Park is transformed into a one-of-a-kind outdoor fine art gallery.

The award-winning art festival has been a Richardson favorite since its beginnings in 1969 and has grown to become a premier art event in North Texas. Just one step into the festival and the vast selection of artwork will have you strolling through the diverse exhibitions for hours. Featuring one-of-a-kind, limited edition works in paintings, sculptures, ceramics, jewelry, fiber art, fine glass, woodwork, mixed media, and photography, there’s a new adventure around every corner.

Plus, with Cottonwood’s interactive activities, delicious cuisine, and live music entertainment, there’s something for everyone to celebrate a beautiful weekend outdoors!
