Olde Town Portsmouth

The Gosport Arts Festival has a forty-four year tradition in Hampton Roads. 2014 will be our fourteenth year in Portsmouth’s beautiful Olde Towne.

Gosport consists of approximately 125 juried artists and craftsmen displaying two- and three-dimensional work. Cash awards exceed $7,000 with additional support provided by many regional sponsors. Gosport benefits Edmarc Hospice for Children, a special local charity that was the first of its kind in the nation. Since 1978, Edmarc has offered assistance to patients and their families every day of the year.

Gosport has a large volunteer base that is dedicated to providing the ultimate festival experience for its artists and patrons. Artists are assisted with their booths, treated to drinks and snacks during the weekend, and invited to a reception and Awards Ceremony featuring a complimentary dinner.

Held along the High Street corridor from the Elizabeth Riverfront to Court Street, the event includes art demonstrations, live music, food vendors, a Children’s Area and a Silent Auction. Museums and attractions, unique shops and eclectic dining surround the event. Make Olde Towne Portsmouth your destination this Mother’s Day Weekend — we’ll see you there!
