The Kids Arts Festival of Tennessee is the first Arts Festival in the state of Tennessee that is fully designed for children and youth. This free annual festival draws youth artists from all over the Middle Tennessee area.
This festival features talented visual youth artists presenting their juried original artwork from multi-media. Live performances including theater, dance, music, spoken word, and more provide entertainment while offering performance opportunities for local youth artists to showcase their talents. Art Vendor Sales offer local youth artists the opportunity to sell their creations to attendees.
Sponsors, community businesses, and non-profit partners offer a variety of interactive art stop experiences designed to engage and expose youth to all types of art experiences. Food is offered by local restaurants and mobile food vendors with the hope to include youth culinary students.
We welcome students, in grades K-12, to apply to participate in the juried art exhibit, hand crafted art sale, or live performances, or to just attend the event for the opportunity to experience and create art with the community. To apply, please visit the event website at www.franklintn.gov/kaft for more information.
The Kids Arts Festival of Tennessee, is founded by a partnership between the City of Franklin Parks and the Williamson County Cultural Arts Commission, a non-profit organization, and supported by Middle Tennessee State University. It is governed by a committee and dedicated to producing an annual free youth arts event.
