Major Events

The Art Village sponsors or co-sponsors three events each year.  We are open to more events that highlight the artwork from our regional artists–if you have an idea please send an email to 

Art In The Park

This is the event most people know.  We have just celebrated our 10th annual Art in the Park (AIP) event.  AIP features original work done by Woodford County or regional artists. The event starts Friday eventing of Memorial Day Weekend and continues through Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend.

Every year AIP has 60 to 65 artists and approximately 4,000 visitors.  This event draws people from all over the region.  Artists registering for a vendors booth to sell their original artwork at this event have their name/business name immediately posted on the website. People/companies sponsoring the event have their name included in our advertising.

Versailles Fall Festival

In September, The Art Village co-hosts the Versailles Fall Festival.  This festival is again for original handcrafted art work, but it is open to a wider definition of original art work and includes a children’s play area, foot races, and a live DJ.  Versailles blocks off two blocks of Main Street and creates a galleria for the day.  Again we post the names of the vendors and sponsors.

To participate in either event contract The Art Village at ArtintheParkVersailles.org

Versailles Christmas Parade

We have begun entering a float in the Christmas Parade and are recruiting high school students with artistic, carpentry, and related skills to design, make, and decorate the float.
