October Festival Since 2013 Event Website Map Link

For more than 45 years, the small artists' community of Edom in East Texas has hosted a festival for working artists presenting their talents to an appreciative audience of gifters and collectors. The festival grew throughout the years to become the premier art show in East Texas. High quality art, fine crafts, live music and great food fill the festival grounds behind the resident artists' studios on the one main street in town, Farm to Market Road 279.
This year's festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, October 14 and Sunday, October 15. Admission is free.

This juried show is well known for having exceptional handmade, original art and fine crafts. Included is a wide variety of creative works such as painting, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, weaving, clothing, blown glass and handmade stringed instruments. The ongoing artists' demonstrations in pottery, blacksmithing and raku firing are fun for all ages. Visitors express surprise at finding such outstanding quality art in the middle of a meadow located in the center of this tiny east Texas hamlet. The "artistic" atmosphere of Edom brings forth the "creative spirit" in everyone who visits.

Live acoustic music during the show adds to the festivities. On the Red Stage, Texas singer/songwriters entertain in an intimate, acoustic setting. Around the grounds, guests find some of the musicians playing under a big shade tree for the enjoyment of the art patrons.

In addition to fabulous art and music, the festival features great food including traditional fair food like funnel cakes and corndogs, as well as pulled pork tacos, shrimp and catfish po'boys, roasted corn, hand cranked ice cream and gourmet sorbet, and homemade root beer.

Visitors are invited to continue or start a new family tradition by attending the Edom Art Festival. Kids can play and create treasures in the children's art area and leashed dogs are welcome to enjoy some quality time in the country.
The Edom Art Festival is a great way to support local, American artists. Visit the resident artists' studios on the main street, for which Edom is well known.
