Art on the Island serves as an economic and cultural celebration of creativity in Madison County and Western North Carolina. There will be special hands-on demonstrations for young and old. This all day affair presents artists, crafters, food, hands-on fun, and kid’s activities from 10am until 6pm and is free and open to the public.

In addition to the festival, Blannahassett Island is the home of Marshall High Studios, located in the renovated 1925 building that formerly housed Marshall High school. These studios house a wide variety of working artist studios. The festival will take place on the grounds of the island, with plenty of space for artist’s booths, playground joy, and picnic fun. All of the participating artists are MCAC members and food is provided by Madison County vendors. There will also be a beer garden sponsored by the Downtown Marshall Association. There will be food and special activities on Main Street in downtown Marshall the day of the festival, and WART 95.5 (Marshall’s Community Radio Voice) will broadcast special programming.
