3rd Annual Lake Norman Festival of the Arts with Craft Marketplace
Returns to Huntersville on May 18 – 19
100 national and local artists and craft artisans bring world-class
creations during free, two-day event
HUNTERSVILLE, NC (May 2, 2019) – Spring is in the air, and thousands of residents and visitors to Lake Norman district will be treated to a weekend-long festival celebrating the best in handmade-in-the-USA art and fine craft during the 3rd Annual Lake Norman Festival of the Arts. One hundred national and local artists are set to display their stunning works from across the nation in a prestigious show encompassing fine jewelry, exquisite works of art and hand-crafted apparel and decor. The festival also includes a full craft market with handmade organic soaps, live plants, tasty edibles, affordable and practical artisan-created works and more.
Residents and visitors alike will find something for everyone during this free, two-day artistic affair. Unlike other exclusive art showcases, the Lake Norman Festival of the Arts invites patrons to meet the artists themselves, commission a custom piece and discover the inspirations and processes behind each handmade-in-the-USA masterpiece. Ample parking is available and pets on leashes are always welcome.
Presented by Howard Alan Events (HAE), producer of the nation’s finest juried art shows, the Lake Norman Festival of the Arts with Craft Marketplace represents original, hand crafted artwork selected by an independent panel of expert judges from hundreds of applicants. HAE’s careful vetting process also ensures a wide array of mediums and price ranges will be offered during the event.
