An Annual Family Friendly, Free Day Full Of Art

2021 Artrageous Kids Art Festival

Presented by PNC Bank

Artrageous has been rescheduled for September, 18 2021. More information coming soon!


Artrageous was started in 1989. The annual, free community event brings families together to paint, sculpt, dance, sing and be creative.

Artrageous is organized and staffed by volunteer artists, musicians, crafters, dancers, writers, photographers and other creative people who dedicate their time and energy to the event each year. 

Proceeds from Artrageous benefit DCAC cultural arts programming and the Artrageous Youth Scholarship Fund, which awards one scholarship to a senior at each Dare County High School.
