This year, we would like to announce a new location and date, and we welcome you to apply to Arts on the Green at Yew Dell Botanical Gardens 2020. We are a juried, Fine Arts and Crafts Festival, which raises funds to benefit the Arts Association of Oldham County (AAOC) a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is "bringing the arts to Oldham County".
Arts on the Green is in its 21st year! We are known for our selection of artists who create original, high quality art.
AOG has a history of attracting 8,000-10,000 visitors annually. This year, due to the scheduled demolition of the old jail and the planned remodeling of the Oldham County Courthouse building, which is adjacent to our traditional location, we are relocating our show to, and are collaborating with, Yew Dell Botanical Gardens in Crestwood, Kentucky, 6220 Old Lagrange Road, Crestwood, KY.
We are so fortunate that we found another beautiful and historic location in Oldham County,that can safely accommodate all of our artists and meet all of our other festival needs; this includes entertainment, food trucks, a cafe, adult beverages, demonstrations and children’s art activities!
There is much excitement and anticipation building for AOG 2020, which is already a fun, family friendly, community event that is a favorite among both visitors and artists!
We hope that you are as excited as we are about our new venue...together, with Yew Dell Botanical Gardens, we are making a lot of fun plans and want to make this an extra special event for our artists and for the community. We appreciate your support and participation and hope that we will see you in July of 2020!
