Decatur, Ala. – For over 55 years, artists and crafters from across the southeastern United States have made their way to the North Alabama town of Guntersville to display their works of art and unique creations for two days in April. Held alongside beautiful Lake Guntersville, Art on the Lake features over 130 fine artists and craftsmen, and along with arts and crafts, festivalgoers are treated to food vendors, outdoor games and rides and a bakeshop. 

Now in its 58th year and designated an official Alabama Bicentennial event, Art on the Lake is a family-friendly festival with a huge offering of artwork, handmade crafts and one-of-a-kind items from over 130 artists and craftsmen. The event features nationally recognized as well as emerging, local artists. Festival attendees will have the opportunity to shop the work of 130+ artists and craftsmen who work with an array of mediums from jewelry, fiber, glass and ceramics to photography, wood crafts, sculpture and dimensional forms.

During the festival, members of the Twenty-First Century Club will have homemade desserts, including a variety of cakes, cookies, pies, fudge and breads, available to purchase. Plenty of entertainment in the form of inflatables, a bungee jumper and carnival type games will provide hours of enjoyment for the kids.
