*Due to COVID-19, information regarding the Fall Fountain Festival is continuously changing. Please visit the Fountain Hills Art Fair page here for the latest information.
The Fall Fountain Festival, also known by locals as the Art Fair, has been approved to begin planning!
The Fall Fountain Festival will be held on November 13-15th from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm daily. The Festival will take place on the Avenue of the Fountains, featuring a variety of local artists. It is the perfect place to get unique artwork or gifts for the upcoming holidays!
COVID Policy for Artists
The Festival has instituted a COVID-19 policy to assist the artists in the event. The policy is as follows:
- Artists will receive a full booth space refund if the event is canceled due to COVID-19 shutdowns enforced by local or federal leadership.
- If you were originally invited/juried into the 2019 Fall Fountain Festival of Fine Arts & Crafts, your invitation will automatically be carried over to the 2020 show. However, this only applies to the 2019 Fall Fountain Festival of Fine Arts & Crafts artists.
- You must still apply and pay for your non-refundable application fee.
- Applications are being released 2 weeks earlier than previous years
About the Festival
The Fall Fountain Festival first started in 1974. It had 60 artists exhibiting their work. Although this may not seem like a lot, it was not to be missed! Today, over 500 artists and craftspeople exhibit their artwork at the Fountain Hills Festival of Fine Arts & Crafts.
This is also a juried show. This means that artists compete to show their work at the festival. Therefore, buyers will have their selection of the best artwork around! Not to mention there is a variety of price ranges, so there is always something for everybody.
All that art shopping is sure to make you hungry! Don’t worry, there are plenty of local restaurants and vendors who will be serving up some delicious food. There will be live music for you to enjoy, too! Grab a snack, grab some art, and have a wonderful time!
The Fall Fountain Festival plans to take COVID-19 safety measures to reduce risk as much as possible. They are waiting to hear from local/federal leadership regarding health practices and gatherings in large groups. They will post that information once available.
The Fountain Hills Fine Arts & Crafts Festival is one of the largest in the southwest. It is a show you won’t want to miss! For more information, visit the Fountain Festival page here.
Outrageous to have 150,000 people in the Hills during the pandemic
