The 62nd Annual St. James Court Art Show will once again bring the best artisans and craftsmen along with hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Old Louisville area during the first weekend in October.

More than 700 artisans from all over the United States return to one of Metro Louisville’s unique and historic neighborhoods for the nation’s premier arts and crafts venue.

“There is a new Kentucky Historical Marker in place this year that tells the story of how the St. James Court Art Show came to be in Old Louisville. Over the years, St. James has welcomed thousands from all over our country to a truly great event. It’s an event that also brings yet another boost to economic development and tourism,” says President David James (D-6).

“We are looking forward with a great deal of excitement to the first week-end in October as we celebrate the 62nd Annual St James Court Art Show. The St James Court Art Show is one of the top-rated art shows in America featuring over 700 artists from all over the United States.  Please join us in celebrating one of Louisville’s most iconic events,” says Howard Rosenberg, Executive Director of the St. James Court Art Show.

The Art Show offers a wide variety of booths featuring furniture, pottery, jewelry, glassworks, photography and paintings.

Rain or shine, the Art Show will take place on October 5th through October 7th.  There is no admission fee. No Pets are allowed unless they are a service animal.
