Science is sure that what people want is experiences, not just things! That's why Arts on the Riverwalk is introducing opportunities to "make, take & educate" potential consumers this year! Areas throughout the festival will be designated to workshops, markets, demonstrations, lectures, and other activities emphasizing interactions with the arts.

If you would like to share your experience, simply pick a category and complete the form below. There is no charge to participate, unless you are selling goods or services. In that event, please complete an Art Market Application. Artists are welcome to demonstrate from their booths in the Art Market.
