The mission of the Arts Council is to nurture and strengthen the artistic, cultural, and educational quality of the community and surrounding areas.

Arts Alive! Home & Garden Festival

  • What Is Arts Alive?
  • The Arts Alive! Home & Garden Festival is a gathering of businesses from the community, Member Organizations, and local artists. They come together under one very large roof to provide education on creating a better home, a beautiful garden… and to enrich their lives with art.

    Vendors come to this event from Wichita Falls and the region to present their products and services. Member Organizations explain the services they provide to create a wonderful quality of life. Artists present their talents and accomplishments to show that art is available to our entire community.

    This festival thrives on the combined effort of committee members, volunteers, organizations, and the community.  The Home & Garden Festival makes it possible for the Kemp Center for the Arts to offer our community art galleries, classes for all ages, and youth camp programs.

    Don’t forget to download the Arts Alive! Home & Garden App for your mobile device.  And be sure to allow notifications for updates in the coming weeks as we gear up for the 2018 event!
