2019 Art Beat
A group of like-minded individuals came together in 2003 with a common idea — to showcase the work of local visual, performing, and culinary artists in the heart of South Bend. Art Beat was born and over the past several years became a downtown South Bend signature art and cultural event drawing over 10,000 visitors annually.
Engage your senses in this day-long showcase of over 800 visual, performing and culinary artists from the area.
Stroll the streets of downtown South Bend during this free, family-friendly event to see the hand-crafted work of local potters, photographers, painters, weavers, jewelers, sketchers, woodcarvers, crocheters, and filmmakers. You’ll also hear the sound of acoustical melodies, African drumming, Zumba beats, soulful Jazz, the power of rock and more.
You’ll taste the flavors of the region, the fresh local produce, and the intricate creations of top chefs and touch the artistic instruments to create your own masterpiece in one of the many community art projects!
DTSB is excited to announce that this year’s event will be in a new location – on the Jefferson Bridge, extending into the East Bank Village!
