Held over the course of three days, this festival celebrates the arts and showcases the works of local and international artists. From paintings and sculptures to jewelry and fashion, there’s something for everyone at the CGA.
The festival features hundreds of artists exhibiting everything from painting and sculpture to jewelry and fashion, so there’s definitely plenty to see.
In addition to the artwork on display, CGAF also offers live music and dance performances, food vendors, and family-friendly activities.
