The Art Festival was founded in 1969 as a way to stimulate an emerging art colony on the Texas Coast. Since then, it has become a staple of the Summer season on the coast – over 120+ artists sell their work to over 10,000+ art buyers.
Rockport Art Festival also serves as a fundraiser for Rockport Center for the Arts. Proceeds go towards creating and sustaining the many free to low-cost programs hosted by Rockport Center for the Arts yearround.
