One of the many things that's great about living in Greenville is the number of festivals and events the city hosts. One of our favorite festivals that happens downtown every year is Artisphere. Artisphere is a juried international arts festival - as you probably could have guessed - that showcases talent across the country. In fact, it is one of the top 10 festivals in the U.S.
The three-day festival features art exhibits and live art demonstrations that in past years have included glassblowing, print making, ceramics and metal works. The weekend also includes a live auction, wine tasting, culinary arts cafe that highlights local restaurants, and outdoor stages with performances by local and national artists. One of our favorites every year is Brian Olsen's Art in Action - you don't want to miss these performances throughout the weekend!
All in all, it's a fun, educational, beautiful weekend that's perfect for the entire family.
Artisphere is happening THIS weekend so be sure to come downtown and check out all the activities. Festival hours are Friday, May 10, from 12pm-8pm, Saturday, May 11, from 10am-8pm and Sunday, May 12, from 11am to 6pm. The cost for all the outdoor activities and performances is free.
While you are downtown this weekend, be sure to come down to the West End to Postcard from Paris' downtown boutique where you can find lots of artful items for your home. We'll be open Friday and Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 1pm-5pm. Feel free to contact us with questions.
