About

Untitled design (8).png

Engage your senses in this day-long showcase of over 500 visual, performing and culinary artists from the Michiana area.

 

Stroll the streets of downtown South Bend during this free, family-friendly event to see the hand-crafted work of local potters, photographers, painters, weavers, jewelers, sketchers, woodcarvers, crocheters, and filmmakers. You'll also hear the sound of acoustical melodies, African drumming, soulful Jazz, the power of rock and more.

You'll taste the flavors of the region, the fresh local produce, and the intricate creations of top chefs and touch the artistic instruments to create your own masterpiece in one of the many community art projects!

If there is a strong chance of inclement weather in the forecast for the 20th, the event will be moved to the 21st, and that announcement will be made on the 19th on this page and on social media.

Art Beat 2022 is happy to announce that TCU will return as our presenting sponsor. Thank you TCU for supporting this annual community event that showcases the incredible talent of our local artists!
