2020 Summit Art Festival

Summit Art cancelled its annual art festival in 2020.  With the ongoing pandemic, the decision on whether or not to host the festival in 2021 has not yet been made.  Summit Art continues to work diligently to figure out how to produce this large-scale, outdoor festival in a way that also protects the health and safety of our artists, patrons and volunteers.
Summit Art will continue to explore creative options that support art and artists during these challenging times.  We are committed to providing exceptional art experiences for years to come!  To learn more about our organization, or how to become a member, please visit our website at:  www.summitart.org.
For many years, this annual event has financially supported our organization’s mission.  We would be very grateful if you would consider making a tax-deductible gift to Summit Art to help us continue our work.  Thank You!



“Where Art is Discovered!”

Summit Art, a 501c3 nonprofit, hosts its annual art fair in the bustling downtown entertainment district of Lee’s Summit, Missouri.  The Summit Art Festival celebrates the power of expression at this three-day, outdoor, high-quality, juried fine art event featuring over 100 artists from all over the country.  Visitors enjoy a unique blend of ART, MUSIC and FOOD!

Over 300 works of art created by area students are showcased in the Student Art Pavilion and the ‘StuckOnArt’ live competition happens at the main intersection on Saturday.  Local musicians and songwriters provide entertaining, eclectic music throughout the entire weekend. Local food trucks serve up a delicious mix of casual street fare, beverages and cocktails.

This weekend event is hosted and managed by Summit Art, a 501c3 nonprofit visual arts organization.  As our annual signature event, this fine art festival supports our mission to encourage and promote artists and visual arts in Lee’s Summit and beyond.  We do this by providing opportunities for networking, education, exhibitions and recognition for members and the art community, and a youth scholarship fund to area high school students working toward obtaining a career in the fine arts.   

The Summit Art Festival is made possible by the generous donations, support and contributions by our community!
