The Arts Festival of Carrollton
Big Show, Small Town Hospitality

Dates: Second weekend in October each year

Patron Purchase Awards

You are invited to support the artists of The Arts Festival of Carrollton by making a financial commitment to purchase art from the exhibits featured at the festival. The Patron Purchase Award program has been highly received by our community. It is a fun, win-win program that benefits the artists and the patrons equally. There are no commissions on these awards. However, knowing that a large sum of art is pre-sold through the Patron’s Purchase program encourages the nation’s finest artists to participate in The Arts Festival of Carrollton. It is why many artists call us the “most artist friendly show in the country.”


  • Awards can be purchased at the Arts Center. Each award is worth $50.
  • You will be invited to attend The Patrons’ Purchase cocktail reception party to meet the artists on Friday evening Oct. 13 from 6:00-8:00.
  • Drop by the Oasis tent at the festival on October 14th and pick up your Arts Festival ribbon and Art Bucks.
  • Visit all the artists’ booths.

  • We will reimburse the artists for the Art Bucks, so no one is out any money!
