ArtsFest

Northeast Baltimore’s arts festival for new and emerging talent!

Overlea ArtsFest is a free, family-friendly annual event celebrating local visual and performing art. Artists and filmmakers of all genres and levels of experience are invited to submit their work to our juried show, which is held on the second weekend of August every year at the beautiful Holt Park & Center for the Arts. A diverse group of performance artists, singers, musicians and spoken word poets are chosen to perform at each event, and free art activities are offered for kids of all ages.

Enjoy the juried show with 50+ local artists and vote for your favorites in our People’s Choice awards… walk the nature trails on the Holt Park grounds… and have a picnic lunch on the grass with your family. You can even bring your dog! ArtsFest has something for everyone.

Overlea ArtsFest has grown and evolved every year since its beginning in 2016, and has been recognized with a special award by Baltimore County. Our commitment to local artists and the community at large is the heart of our mission. ArtsFest is made possible with the help of our generous sponsors – Rosedale Federal Savings & Loan, Carrabba’s Overlea and Weis Markets Nottingham – and the dedicated volunteers and donors that lend their support. Overlea ArtsFest, Inc. is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.
