Quality art in a perfect venue, the variety of art Louisville deserves with the added venue of the Ohio River Waterfront Park and the Big Four Bridge Pedestrian Walk, hotels, restaurants, Bourbon District nightlife, family friendly atmosphere, ample parking and shopping nearby.
Each year, the Big Four Arts Festival invites guests to start the weekend of fine art, food and entertainment with the Big Four Arts Festival Preview Party. Guests for this one night only event have exclusive access to select artist booths in the Big Four Arts Festival to view the art of the guest artists, enjoy delicious food and beverages and, of course, have the first chance to buy limited edition works of art! This is one of the most highly anticipated nights in Louisville’s social calendar.
Located in downtown Louisville, KY on the Big Four Bridge Lawn, four acres of tree lined walks overlooking the Ohio River. Better than 2 million people visit Waterfront Park annually for special events. Ample Parking and trolley service for our patrons. Located within walking distance to downtown Louisville’s popular restaurants, Nulu District, 4th Street Live, and Whiskey Row. The quality juried artist will be presented in a location that was built to showcase festivals and special events. As an application incentive for this year only, all artists that are accepted by the Festival jury in 2017 will be exempt from jury in 2018. The Big Four Bridge Arts Festival has been three years in the planning to insure this is a pleasant and profitable experience for all involved. Community inclusion and support for the arts has spawned a loyal and highly engaged audience that will attend and support our festival. We invite you to join us. “Louisville Loves the Arts!”
