Unfestival Artist Market

Each year we welcome talented local and regional artists working in a wide variety of materials, media and price ranges. Even though we can’t be in the park together this year, we will still offer you access to the same high-quality art and artists you’re used to finding at the festival. If you are looking for something new, something unique and something special, the Summer Shade unFestival Virtual Artist Market is the place to find it.

Expect to discover everything from handmade clothing and textiles to original paintings and prints, and from leather goods to statement jewelry, plus something you didn't know you wanted until you saw it! You will be delighted by the quality and variety of artists who make up our online market, and you won’t even break a sweat perusing the goods!
