Things to Do at Artisphere 2024

There’s something for everyone and some things you may discover you like that you never knew about. At a recent festival, my son was able to get a lesson from a welder about working with copper. It was something he still talks about! If you are doing home-based learning this year, this is a great opportunity to work art into your curriculum!

The festival is a combination of visual art, performance art, and culinary creations melded into three days of fun! In addition to viewing 140 visual artists work on GE Artist Row, other art exhibits and demos will include Clemson at Artisphere, Demo Row, Art Lab, Artists on the Rise, Art of Healthy Living, Artists of the Upstate, Arts and Drafts Chalk Art, Lotty, and Kidsphere!

Kidsphere is always a fun place to land when arriving at the festival if you have kids. There are several fun crafting projects and activities your kids can engage in. They will be able to craft and create something special to them before heading deeper down Artist Row to give them a glimpse of the artists they may become.

Kidsphere will be located at South Main Street between Grill Marks and the Main Stage. The area is usually tented, so it’s a great way to escape the heat (or rain, we all know rain likes to enjoy Artisphere most years).
