The Allen Arts Festival, organized by the Allen Arts Alliance returns every year to Watter’s Creek at Montgomery Farm in Allen, Texas during the second full weekend in May. 2020 marks the 12th year of the festival. Allen is a thriving community north of Dallas with a median household income of more than $100,000. The festival features an outstanding group of juried artists, local and regional, showcasing original art in different media categories. Live entertainment, children’s art activities, and much more is offered throughout the weekend.
Watters Creek is a beautiful 52 acres resort-style mixed use development with office and mid-rise apartment spaces incorporated into a master planned community of walkable spaces, lush landscaping, public art, upscale shopping and top notch dining. Its prime shopping and dinning destinations draw thousands of visitors from Allen and other cities every weekend.
