Nonprofits Wanted for 58th Art on Main Festival

The Arts Council of Henderson County is extending an invitation for nonprofit organizations to participate in the 58th annual Art on Main fine art/fine craft festival, which will be held Saturday, Sept.30 and Sunday, Oct. 1, on Hendersonville’s historic Main Street.

Nonprofits will have an opportunity to educate the public about their organizations. The deadline for nonprofit organizations to confirm their acceptance is Monday, August 2. The number of nonprofit spaces is limited, and therefore on a first come, first served basis.

During Art on Main, more than 80 artists from throughout the southeast region will be exhibiting and selling their work along Hendersonville’s Main Street. Demonstrations by many artists will also be part of the show. Thousands of art lovers are anticipated throughout the weekend. Hours for the festival will be from 10am-5pm both days.

Nonprofits will be assigned to a space that is approximately 10’x10’. A canopy/tent is recommended but not required.  Acceptance of the invitation may be made by emailing, or by calling 828-693-8504. The web address is
