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

2018 will be the 21st Anniversary for the Arts Alive! Home and Garden Festival on February 24th and 25th Saturday from 9:00 – 6:00 and Sunday 11:00 – 5:00. This is a chance to shop under one roof for all of the things that will make your home and garden beautiful. Enjoy visiting with the experts, artists, and organizations that can help you to have the home and garden of your dreams. Come and join with us to welcome springtime and renew your spirit to make your house a home and your garden productive. Your support of the Arts Council with the Kemp Center for the Arts makes the arts come alive for our community, culture, and family.

  • 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!
