General Information

The three-day festival is hosted in Atalaya, the former home of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington. The Moorish-style winter home and sculpture studio was built during the Great Depression by the New York philanthropists, and will host over 100 artists and their work during the weekend of the festival.

Visitors will also be treated to live music by accomplished local musicians on a stage in the courtyard, as well as a food court with seafood, barbecue and other culinary delights.

The festival spotlights the park’s natural beauty and the amenities offered to visitors year-round. Located along U.S. 17 in Murrells Inlet, Huntington Beach State Park offers several hundred thousand visitors a year one of the most pristine beaches on the Grand Strand. The 2,500-acre park’s freshwater lagoon, salt marsh and maritime forest also are outstanding examples of the state’s natural coastal environment, and the park is widely regarded as one of the best birding sites along the East Coast. Its natural history is highlighted in the park’s environmental education center.
