Join the artsy Galveston community at the annual ARToberFEST on Oct. 19-20. Now in its 22nd year, the festival features over 100 artists and their creations (some are for sale!) in different mediums, live music and entertainment from a diverse set of musicians and performers, and a kid’s creative zone to spark artists’ creativity at a young age. There is also a farmer’s market and vendor booths, and the event takes place within four blocks of the historic downtown cultural district, which offers easy access to full-service restaurants and other shops. This year’s festival is held in honor of modern impressionist artist Jeff Hamachek, who was a long-time participant in the event.
