The Annual Festival

Back to

Great plans are always underway for the annual Arts for All Festival!  The festival is both a celebration of the arts and a “thank you” to the community for supporting the arts throughout the year.  The success of this wonderful event is due to a cooperative effort of teamwork between businesses, civic and community organizations, and hundreds of dedicated volunteers.

Through the years, our little festival has grown into a large fine arts juried show, and artists across the United States clearly indicate that the Arts for All Festival in Lawton has become a highly sought after event for artists on a national level!  

Artists representing many states display in mediums of photography, pottery, sculpture, painting, jewelry, and more.  Accompanying the wonderful array of visual arts are the art of cuisine.   Entertainment is featured on two stages by our local children’s groups, schools, and dance studios.

The stated mission of Arts for All Festival is “to create a fine arts festival of regional appeal, bringing to southwest Oklahoma quality visual and performing arts, for the benefit of the member groups of Arts for All, Inc.”  The six member groups are:

Lawton Community Theatre
Lawton Philharmonic Society
Southwest Oklahoma Opera Guild
Wichita Wildlight Photography Society
Lawton / Fort Sill Art Council
Lawton Pro Musica

The Arts for All Festival is deeply grateful to the City of Lawton, the McMahon Foundation, the Oklahoma Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts for their many years of financial assistance.  They give life to our local communities through the arts!
