Art on the Lake Offers Art and Family Fun along Guntersville’s Riverfront Apr. 17-18
Decatur, Ala. – Artists and crafters from across the southeastern United States will make their way to the North Alabama town of Guntersville the third weekend in April to display their works of art and unique creations. Held alongside beautiful Lake Guntersville, Art on the Lake features the works of over 80 fine artists and craftsmen, and along with arts and crafts, festivalgoers are treated to food vendors, outdoor games and rides and a bakeshop. This year’s event will also be a hybrid event, consisting of a modified live event to allow for safe shopping and an online show experience where art lovers can connect with their favorite vendors.
Now in its 60th year, 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 80 artists and craftsmen. The event features nationally recognized as well as emerging, local artists. The layout of this year’s event will be spaced out enough to allow patrons to safely and comfortably shop. A virtual artist gallery will also be available at www.artonthelake-guntersville.com. 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.
Set for April 17 and 18, 2021, Art on the Lake is held at the Guntersville Recreational Center located at 1500 Sunset Drive in Guntersville. Hours are Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $2 for ages 13 and older. The event is held rain or shine. No animals allowed.
Sponsored by the Twenty-First Century Club of Guntersville, Art on the Lake promotes the arts while benefiting a scholarship program for local high school graduates.
