An art festival for the entire family, featuring artwork by local artists, food vendors, live musical entertainment, and activities for children.

It’s time to once again feed your soul…

Taste The Arts is the largest outdoor arts festival in the Valley!  Join us for our upcoming Taste The Arts event on October 14th, 2023.  Experience three city blocks of art, culture and wellness activities happening right in the heart of Downtown Visalia as local artists display their work along Garden Street, with booths lined from Garden Street Plaza to Oak St.

Festival-goers can participate in a wide variety of activities, including the My Voice Media Center Art Cafe, the Visalia Farmer’s Market Food Sculpture Challenge, COS Printworks Interactive Small Block Printing, Grace Note Music Studio Instrument Petting Zoo, and live art demonstrations. Watch art come alive!  Try your hand at contests, admire and purchase the beautiful art and unique crafts for sale, then take a break and watch the performing artists on two stages packed with a full day of live performances!  You’ll also enjoy the wide variety of food vendors we have to offer – stop for lunch, enjoy a dessert, or just relax with a coffee.

Ampelio Mejia Perez, Executive Director of the Arts Consortium, says, “We continue adding interactive offerings for the entire family, so you will be sure to find something for everyone.  We are especially glad to feature our 2022 Artist of the Year, Francisco Alonzo, at the free printmaking demonstration area!”  This festival is sure to be a very special event, bringing the community together in appreciation of art and artists. We’d like to thank all of our partners and sponsors who helped make this possible.

The festival is open from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The event is free – no tickets are required, just stop by Garden Street to join in the festivities.  For more information about Taste The Arts, visit:  https://artsconsortium.org/events/tta/.  For additional questions, please call (559) 772-0001.
