2019 Summit Art Festival

Lee’s Summit, Missouri

The 12th annual Summit Art Festival is a 3-day, outdoor, high-quality fine art event held in the bustling downtown entertainment district of Lee’s Summit, MO.   Featuring over 100 artists from all over the country, visitors enjoy a unique blend of art, music and food!

Over 250 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.  The home of Summit Art-Got Art Gallery is located on the festival site and features an exhibition of works created by area art faculty and staff, and our Artist Hospitality Lounge.  Local musicians provide entertaining, non-amplified music throughout the entire weekend at two performance locations. 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 juried membership 501c3 non-profit visual arts organization.  As our annual signature event, this fine art festival supports our mission to provide exhibition opportunities, professional development and mentoring, and a youth scholarship fund to area high school students working toward obtaining a career in the fine arts.   

The festival is made possible by contributions from organizations and individuals. Please donate to Summit Art Festival today.
