The fifth annual Kerrville Festival of the Arts is currently jurying artists’ applications. As soon as that process is complete, information about specific participating artists will be provided on the “Confirmed Artists” page.
Admission to Kerrville Festival of the Arts is free and there is free parking in the adjacent parking garage.
Kerrville’s Historic Downtown area offers visitors not only a Fine Art experience but also the opportunity to visit our fine restaurants and shops. You will find a little bit of everything – antiques, collectibles, rare and collectible books, home décor and fine clothing.
And be sure to check out Rita’s Famous Tacos for a great breakfast and coffee! Francisco’s has wonderful everything, especially the chalupa and the tortilla soup.
In addition to the Festival of the Arts, downtown will also feature:
- Kerr Arts and Cultural Center – Southwest Gourd Fine Art Show
- Plus special hands-on art projects for younger visitors – they can weave, print, glue, bead, paint and be painted at the Creative Area for Kids at KACC. Some projects are FREE and others are $2 each or 3 for $5.

- Texas Masters of Fine Art and Craft Show at the YO Hotel
- Kerrville Folk Festival at Quiet Valley Ranch
