Cottonwood Lakeside Courtyard is home to Cottonwood's Boutique, The Main Stage, Festival Headquarters, and Artist Information Booth. The festival courtyard also offers beer, wine and frozen margaritas for purchase - and, new this year, the Craft Beer Garden!

ArtStop Children's Area

By heading across the bridge our pint-size Picasso’s will enjoy a wide array of art and craft activities. Children of all ages will have the opportunity to create a sculpture hat from scrap, design a masterpiece in plaster, add to an enormous collage, or practice their hand at sculpting clay on a real potter’s wheel.

Emerging Artist Program

The Emerging Artist Program is an innovative and resourceful tool that mentors high school aged students in the art world. Students are encouraged to express themselves artistically and learn the process of exhibiting. This program only takes place in the spring and is proudly sponsored by Opportunity Bank in Richardson.
