Each year, Three Rivers draws art lovers to Downtown Covington to shop the work of talented artists from all over the United States. Spread across five city blocks of Columbia Street in the city’s Cultural Arts District, the festival features more than 200 artist tents with work ranging from painting to metalwork and everything in between. The festival also hosts a student art com-petition featuring more than 400 works of art created by talented local youth, inspiring and encouraging children of all ages to experiment with and create art.
“Three Rivers celebrates the arts in all its forms – visual art, music, performance and more – and brings some of the best art-ists in the country to showcase their work here on the Northshore,” says Three Rivers Art Festival Coordinator Sarada Bon-nett. “We are thrilled to celebrate 25 incredible years for our festival in our uniquely artistic community of Covington.”
Over the past two decades, Three Rivers has grown from a celebration of 49 artists to more than 200 exhibitors and a variety of other features including a live music tent, live art demonstrations, local food vendors and a children’s activity area.
Adding to the weekend’s festivities, Three Rivers will once again host a free public concert at the Covington Trailhead (419 N. New Hampshire Street) on Saturday, November 13 at 8PM.
