Panoply

Panoply

Panoply Arts Festival is the premier arts weekend in the southeast and is annually held the last weekend in April. Downtown Huntsville’s Big Spring International Park is transformed for an entire weekend into the home for our city’s biggest festival of the year. Visitors come from across the country to take part in this culmination of music, art, culture, dance and more!

Day and weekend passes are available, and guess what – kids 12 and under get in completely free.

Music

While the event is full of local talent, the festival also draws regional and national headliners for its evening performances (In 2015, we had the Indigo Girls!)

Art

Each year visual artists from all types of disciplines display and sell art. From paintings and sculptures to jewelry and clothing – there’s a “maker” in everyone displaying their work at Panoply.

Dance

You can see dancers of every age perform – from ballet to hip hop, and many cultural dances too, like Irish dancers or the classical Chinese form. These performances happen on stages throughout Big Spring International Park.

And More!
  • Craft beer and wine
  • Food vendors
  • Kids interactive stations
  • Crafts
  • Theater
  • Puppets

Many locals make this a yearly outing, but this regional arts festival draws in just as many out-of-state visitors, too. Panoply should definitely be on your list of “must dos.”
