Join us for the Annual Artesian Arts Festival to celebrate Native American culture through art, dance, music, food and more!

On Memorial Day weekend the Artesian Plaza in downtown Sulphur turns into a vibrant place filled with Native American art during the Artesian Arts Festival. Browse through one-of-a-kind work from over 100 elite Native American artists. The art market offers an array of media and selections including paintings, pottery, jewelry, beadwork, metalwork, sculptures and basketry. 

While you're there, enjoy tribal dance demonstrations, live musical entertainment and have a delicious meal from a variety of food vendors. This family friendly event even has children's activities to keep the kids entertained. There is something for everyone at the Artesian Arts Festival conveniently located within walking distance from the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, the Artesian Hotel and Casino, the Artesian Gallery and studios and numerous boutiques and shops.
