Artist Info:

The Big Four Arts Festival in Louisville, KY is held on Waterfront Park at the Big Four Bridge Lawn – four gorgeous acres of tree lined walks overlooking the Ohio River. More than 2 million people visit Waterfront Park annually and 25,000 stroll the Big Four pedestrian bridge each weekend. The festival is known by artists for its easy access, spacious booth layouts, and many artist amenities. The 2017 inaugural festival was the largest attended two-day event ever at the Big Four Bridge Lawn with a 2-day attendance estimated at 50,000. Artists are chosen by an independent panel of 3 judges. This year we have allotted spaces for over 200+ quality, juried local and national artists.

Here’s what one artist had to say about the Festival:
"We do about 14 art shows a year; and I can tell you that this was the BEST one we have done this year.  Our sales were awesome. Your advertising paid off, because the crowd was huge.  I loved the lay out - the park is beautiful.  You did a wonderful job planning this event."  - Debbie & John Wiles, GourDesigns, Matoon

The Big Four Bridge Art Festival would like to thank the support of B4B Productions and Design Web Louisville.
