Rain or shine Spring for Art is here!
Mark your calendar because there are few better ways to spring forward than with Spring for Art, a celebration of music, art and performing arts, and few better places to celebrate such than historic downtown Covington. Spring for Art is a free festival held in the streets of the city’s historic downtown district. Produced by St. Tammany Art Association, the annual event draws thousands of patrons who come out to enjoy the live music, art demonstrations, performances and dining in numerous Spring for Art locations.
The popular Mix Masters’ Competition also returns, organized by the Taste of Covington, local bartenders dazzle crowds with their innovative cocktails. Audiences will vote on their favorites, and a new Mix Masters’ Champion will be crowned, with the top mixers taking home cash prizes.

Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works. Children’s art education programming is supported in part by a Community Partnership Grant from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation.
