If so (or if you just want to come to a show with a bunch of your family and friends), then you’ve come to the right place! Seeing an art festival with a group is not only fun, it is a great way to build community and bond with your friends, family, team, and co-workers. We have everything you need to have a great visit, from fantastic food to excellent entertainment. Do a little shopping, try your hand at art, have a drink, meet a llama, and relax on the waterfront to great live music all in one day. It’s going to be a great weekend on the waterfront, and we can’t wait to share it with your group.

Typically, group ticket sales are offered for a minimum group size of 10 or more; however, this minimum size may vary, depending on what you need to coordinate your group attendance. For groups who plan to attend on both Saturday and Sunday, we offer discounted hotel packages. Please see our art festival hotel partners page for detail and a link to our hotel partners and deals.
