Gresham Arts Festival

  • Third weekend in July
    Historic Downtown Gresham

    The annual Gresham Arts Festival features "Look at that!" art, music, food and fun, turning the city's historic downtown into a giant art gallery. 

    2020 Gresham Arts Festival update

    Artist list and purchasing information

    To our Gresham community,

    As many of you know, Gov. Kate Brown has announced that no events or festivals can take place in Oregon through September; many regional summer events are already canceled. As a result, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Gresham Arts Festival. Our priority is everyone's safety, and this popular event typically attracts thousands of attendees. While this decision saddens us, as we truly love bringing the community together to celebrate art, the health and safety of everyone must come first.

    We encourage you to continue to support one another, your local businesses and artisans during this challenging time. Shop local when you safely can. Help when and where you can. Keep the creativity flowing through music and art in your own homes.

    If you want to reconnect with a local artist you met from past Gresham Arts Festivals, email

    The City is already planning for 2021. We look forward to coming together again. Until then, stay safe, and stay strong, Gresham.
