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 22, 2023
In the case of bad weather, the event will be moved to Sunday April 23, 2023 from 12pm-6pm.
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.
We will also showcase musicians, local restaurant vendors, and kid-friendly activities.
Location assignments will be determined and announced after the application deadline. Maps will be provided in advance of the event.
