2021 Taste The Arts Festival

Taste The Arts Festival

Taste The Arts is an annual festival presented by the Arts Consortium— the official arts council of Tulare County. This annual event in downtown Visalia is a celebration of the rich cultural and artistic heritage of our community.

The Central Valley is known for the diverse crops grown in our area. This diversity also attracts a broad spectrum of cultures to our region, each with its own distinctive arts and traditions. Taste The Arts celebrates this multi-cultural background with an event just as unique!

Taste the Arts offers a full day of free activities for the community. Check out more than 70 regional visual artists and their paintings, sculptures, steel work, photographs, gourds, and jewelry. Enjoy entertainment on three packed stages featuring musical acts, dance troupes, and cultural performers. Participate in printmaking workshops or showcase your creativity in the Farmers Market “Fun with Food” sculpture contest. Take advantage of numerous youth activities and much, much more. ALL FOR FREE!


Location: Intersection of Center Ave and Garden Street, between Main Street and School Avenue, Downtown Visalia
