Participants include hundreds of local communities, including arts agencies, cities, counties, state agencies, chambers of commerce, and organizations and almost thousands of individual artists.
Our mission is to encourage consumers to shop with their favorite local artists, creators and makers during the holiday season. Artists Sunday takes place the Sunday after Thanksgiving (Nov 28, 2021). Think of it like Black Friday or Small Business Saturday but for the arts.
More than 400 art organizations and economic development agencies across the country promoted and championed artists in their communities. Participating organizations include: local arts agencies, state agencies, counties, chambers of commerce, national organizations, associations, municipalities, and community groups across the country.
