HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Saturday, September 12, an annual tradition returns to Monte Sano State Park. And yes, it’s returning in-person.

The Monte Sano Arts Festival is back both Saturday and Sunday, but with masking and social distancing guidelines in mind.

The art festival will be scaled down compared with previous years to allow for social distancing, but will still showcase local and regional visual artists, along with local food and music.

The festival will be open to the public from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday.

While Arts Huntsville doesn’t charge admission for the festival, Monte Sano State Park charges $10/car cash only for parking and $5 per person for entrance to the park. All funds go to the state park system.

Attendees and vendors will be required to wear masks or face shields. Masks will be provided if attendees don’t have one. Sanitizer stations will be available at each booth and throughout the park, with attendees asked to sanitize before touching artwork and limiting themselves to two at a time in booths.
