Hunt County Festival of the Arts is coming May 6-7, 2022. Plans are underway to create the first Annual Hunt County Festival of the Arts this spring in downtown Greenville. The festival will start on Friday, May 6, 2022, and run through Saturday, May 7, 2022. The late Dennis Strickland, a local arts supporter who saw creativity wherever he looked, has inspired the event. “In the eyes of Dennis, everyone was an artist, “said Kevin Banks, the City of Greenville’s tourism manager who is spearheading the project. “We want to create an event that celebrates the arts in all their creative forms-visual, culinary, musical, theatrical, and more.” Anyone interested in participating in the festival is encouraged to call Kevin Banks at 903-457-3126.
