The Festival

Brentwood Elementary School, a Creative Learning Classroom Initiative, has embraced the Violet Crown Arts Festival and will host it in the heart of the Brentwood & Crestview neighborhoods that the VCCW supports. The festival will be held in the school’s west parking lot at 6700 Yates, Austin, TX 78757.

Expect to find unique artwork from talented sculptors, potters, and fiber artists, painters, jewelers, glass artists, woodworkers and metal smiths. Shop for hand made gifts and great quality art, and support local cottage businesses. It's always free admission for the whole family!
