Due to COVID-19 concerns this event has been cancelled. The American Artisan Festival will return to Centennial Park on Father’s Day Weekend in June 2021.
The 46th annual American Artisan Festival will return to the front lawn of Centennial Park this coming Father’s Day weekend in Nashville Tennessee.
Always free to the public, the American Artisan Festival is a highly curated art fair featuring the finest in contemporary American crafts and fine art from over 150 artists from around the country. Visitors also enjoy a weekend-long line-up of live music from Nashville’s best singer-songwriters, free children’s art booths, and more than fifteen artisanal food and drink booths from the best food purveyors in America. What’s more, it has become a Father’s Day tradition for many Nashvillians.
The American Artisan Festival has had a long and successful history in Nashville since 1971. Founded by Nancy Saturn, a pioneer in the contemporary crafts and fine art in Nashville, the American Artisan Festival has been dedicated to creating access to the highest quality artists for over 40 years. Nancy lost her battle with breast cancer in 2010; however, the show carries on her tradition of excellence led by her daughter and protégé, Samantha Saturn.
