The Big Four Arts Festival in Louisville has been the most attended (15k+) two-day event ever held at Waterfront Park. The 8th B4AF 2024, the weekend following Labor Day, will be held at Waterfront Park, on the Big Four Bridge Lawn under the tree-lined walks overlooking the Ohio River.

2023 was a huge success, JOIN US in 2024!

Such was the overall success of the B4AF that Louisville's Tourism Bureau presented us the Rose Award for bringing in so much commerce. In 22" & 23" we were selected Top 200, by Sunshine Artist Magazine, #55 in under 7 years!

"What Big Four does is it allows me access to the art-centric city of Louisville, offers a wonderful venue, and it does bring in interested buyers. The director, organization, and staff volunteers are all dedicated to making artists feel welcome and running an excellent show.  Thank you to everyone involved."- Stew Rein
