The festival has maintained its charm and prestige as one of the nation’s top art festivals, being recognized multiple times by Sunshine Artist magazine. It owes its continuous success to the spirited Chattanooga community, whose consistent support and admiration for the independent artists have solidified the event’s standing in the art world.

The artists will present a plethora of art mediums, with distinctive collections spanning from painting, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, wood, glass, to even photography. With such a diverse array of creations all under one roof, the 4 Bridges Arts Festival offers an unparalleled shopping experience, whether you’re on the lookout for a unique piece to adorn your home or a thoughtful present for a friend.

Performances Galore

Next Generation of Artists

Local artist, author, and performing artist, Andrea Zoppo is all set to run the show as this year’s children’s artist-in-residence. She, along with her troupe of performers, will present her riveting show, “Weather the Weather,” an inventive exploration of how weather influences us through playful and slightly surreal performances that take cues from old-fashioned Cirque-style clown performances. As a bonus, Andrea Zoppo will also provide face painting services on both days of the festival.
