We’re thrilled to announce that the 45th annual American Artisan Festival will be back this year in Centennial Park on Father’s Day weekend, June 14, 15 & 16, 2019, in Nashville Tennessee. Apply today for your chance to learn first-hand the amazing experience as touted by fellow artists: historically very high art sales potential, strong rankings amongst artists, and a supportive environment for artists, sales and customer development. 

Always free to the public, the American Artisan Festival is visited by more than 25,000 annually.  In addition to presenting the best in contemporary American crafts and fine art, visitors also enjoy public art installations, live music from Nashville’s best singer-songwriters produced by Musicians Corner, free children’s art booths, and more than fifteen artisanal food and drink booths.   

The American Artisan Festival has had a long and successful history in Nashville since 1971. Founded by Nancy Saturn, a pioneer in the contemporary craft movement, the American Artisan Festival has been dedicated to showcasing the highest quality artists for over 40 years. Nancy lost her battle with breast cancer in 2010; however, the show carries on her tradition of excellence led by her daughter and protégé, Samantha Saturn.
