Dear Artists

We are so excited to invite you to participate in the 7th Annual Oasis Arts and Eats Festival

in Downtown Jonesboro, Arkansas!


This event is the largest and most established artist festival in Northeast Arkansas. It is a collaborative effort between the Foundation of Arts, the Downtown Jonesboro Alliance, the Department of Art + Design at A-State, Jonesboro Radio Group, and NEA Artist Collective.  

Oasis is a celebration of the visual, performing and culinary arts in Northeast Arkansas and is open to any skilled artists or craftsmen who wish to apply.


Art will be exhibited outdoors along Main St. and/or other parts of Downtown.

The area will be closed off to all traffic. All varieties of original visual art may be displayed and sold, but no third party selling will be permitted.

April 7, 2024

Set up:
10 am - 12 pm

In the case of bad weather, the event will be moved to Saturday April 13, 2024 from 12 - 4 pm. 

Each participant will be given a 10'X10' space and must provide their own tables, easels, or any other set-up equipment deemed necessary. If you would like to utilize a tent, you may bring your own or a limited quantity will be available for check out for a $20 fee. Due to the event happening on the street, weights are recommended to keep tents secure in case of high winds.
