JURY DETAILS


Event Summary
Celebrating our 43nd year, the Arts for All Festival has been Southwest Oklahoma's largest and most popular cultural outdoor event, drawing people from Oklahoma and Texas for a weekend filled with art, entertainment and tantalizing foods.  The annual festival is timed to be such that artistis are in the late Spring cycle of festivals.  We hope that this will encourage you to participate since we are in the midst of area festivals without conflicting. The festival is a cooperative effort of businesses, civic organizations and hundreds of volunteers who support and encourage the arts. All profits are contributed to the participating arts organization of Arts for All Inc.
