Art Beat

August 19, 2023
11:00AM - 7:00PM

Engage your senses in this day-long showcase of over 500 visual, performing, and culinary artists from the Michiana 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, 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!

The South Bend Museum of Art and DTSB is bringing back KID BEAT! for its fifth year. It’s a special area of Art Beat with art by and for kids, located directly in the northeast corner of the Century Center parking lot.
