Press Release

The Kings Mountain community announces the 61st annual Kings Mountain Art Fair to be held over Labor Day weekend from August 31st through September 2nd, 2024. With 26 new artists this year and a total of over 140 artists, this juried fair has a long-standing reputation as one of the finest art fairs on the West Coast. In addition to original art by independent artists, the fair will offer excellent food for breakfast and lunch – including Grandma Jenny’s famous giant cookies, hot and cold beverages (including beer and wine), and children’s games and crafts nestled outdoors along Skyline Boulevard in the redwood forest. Admission is free.

“I am grateful to the artists not only for the quality of the art they present but also for their eagerness to share their processes with fairgoers,” said Kings Mountain Art Fair Executive Director Bev Abbott. “We have new artists bringing fresh perspectives in each art category, and artists who have been with us for years who have a loyal following of fair customers.”

The Kings Mountain Art Fair is unique in its commitment to supporting its community, as well as the environment – with a goal of becoming a “zero waste” event. The Kings Mountain Art Fair stands out for its beautiful natural setting and the more than 400 community volunteers that come together to produce the show. Launched in 1963 as a fundraiser to build a firehouse in the remote Kings Mountain community, the fair continues to provide essential funding to the now well-established Kings Mountain Volunteer Fire Brigade. The KMVFB responds to over 300 calls annually, providing critical support to the community and its many visitors who come to enjoy hiking trails, mountain biking and the scenery of the redwood forest. The fair also supports Kings Mountain Elementary, a local school in the Cabrillo Unified School District serving approximately sixty children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

Due to the fragile nature of much of the artwork at the fair, pets are not permitted. Fairgoers hike, bike, and drive to the fair. Bicycle racks are available on site. Shuttle service is provided for those who choose to drive and park along Skyline Blvd. Since the fair is located at 2050 ft elevation in the coastal redwood forest, temperatures can vary significantly through the day. Dressing in layers is recommended. Artist’s work can be previewed and shopped online before, during and after the fair at
