We would like to invite you to be a part of our Art Patron Program and experience firsthand the quality of fine art and craftsmanship that will be available this year. The Art Patron Program started as a way to attract high quality artists and crafters to the festival. With continued support from our Art Patrons, the Art Patron Program has been in existence for many years.
The cost of becoming an Art Patron is $125, $255.00, or $500.00.
How does the Art Patron program work? During the Festival, you will take your Art Patron Voucher totaled at $125/$255.00/$500.00 and shop. Art Patron vouchers can be used in the Fine Arts section or Arts & Crafts area of the festival. Once you have found the perfect piece, present the artist with your voucher (the voucher will act as payment toward your art). Then simply walk away with your artwork! A ribbon with your company’s name embossed on it will be delivered to the artist and then visible to the estimated 250,000 visitors at the festival.
To sign-up you may complete an application on our website. Please call or e-mail with any questions regarding the program. As always, your patriotism and support of the Annual National Shrimp Festival is greatly appreciated!
Your voucher, poster and hat will be delivered a few weeks before the festival.
