Louisville – Since it began in 1957, the St. James Court Art Show has brought the best artisans and craftsmen along with hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Old Louisville area for a weekend in October.

This weekend, the tradition continues when more than 700 artisans from all over the United States return to Old Louisville for the nation’s premier arts and crafts venue.

“This is a special time for the Old Louisville area. The St. James Court Art Show not only showcases a very special area of District 6, it has brought millions of dollars economic development and tourism as well,” says Councilman David James (D-6).

The Art Show offers a wide variety of booths featuring such items as furniture, pottery, jewelry, glassworks, photography and paintings. The show has been ranked #1 in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine.

“Old Louisville welcomes the 200,000 to 300, 000 guests who will view our period architecture, walk under a canopy of beautiful trees and visit with these marvelous artisans and craftsmen who over the years have made the St. James Court Art Show something unique and wonderful to our area,” says Joan Stewart, Chair of the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council. “We thank Councilman James for his support and also thank the five Neighborhoods Associations who organize this wonderful event every year.”

The Art Show is a key fundraising effort for the area.

“This show allows the residents of the St. James Court and the other great Old Louisville neighborhoods to maintain the uniqueness of this historical area,” says James.

The Councilman’s office also reminds everyone that there will be many street closures and no parking areas around the St. James Court area:
