|Orange Beach Festival of art March 8-9|
February 11, 2014 - Orange Beach, AL (OBA) - For 40 years, the Festival of Art has been Orange Beach's first rite of spring — and this year, you can expect even more artistic wonders, stunning performances and family fun.
The Orange Beach Festival of Art is set for March 8 and 9, and will feature more than 100 local and regional fine artists of visual, performing and culinary arts.
The Festival is a fine arts, juried event every second weekend in March on the grounds of the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach and Waterfront Park on Canal Road. Festival hours are Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
While it is free to attend, there is no public parking onsite. Public parking will be located at The Wharf and shuttles will be provided at a rate of $2 each way.
With more than 100 artists working in a dazzling variety of mediums, festival-goers always have plenty to see, hear, touch, taste and smell as art vendors, musical performers and artist demonstrations deliver a multitude of sensory experiences.
Visual artists were specially selected for this show and present only the highest quality art in their respective mediums. Works in acrylic, oil, watercolor, glass, pottery, wood, jewelry and more will be displayed and sold during the event.
Selected musicians will include Roman Street, Sugarcane Jane, Three Bean Soup and Brent Burns. Performing artists in multiple genres will be included in the lineup.

Culinary selections featured at the festival offer gourmet flair, while still providing plenty of child-friendly options. Feast your eyes on beautifully presented culinary pieces while savoring the rich flavors of the GulfCoast.
Kid’s Art Alley offers young festival goers plenty of hands-on fun. Children can dig fingers into bright paint, enjoy games, watch live demonstrations and take home their own works of art.
Festival grounds will be a sight to behold, as the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach has recently completed an extensive grounds renovation project that includes lighted pathways, lush landscape and a gorgeous central plaza.
