The City of Bisbee extended its groovy small-town hospitality with its wildly popular inaugural Bisbee Festival of the Arts debut the weekend of October 22-23, 2022. The Bisbee Arts Commission, with a mission of transforming lives and enriching the community through the arts, is the host and organizer of the festival.

“Artists are the backbone of the Bisbee community. When we began creating the catalog for the festival, it was astounding to see how many working artists there truly are here. After the negative effect the pandemic had on artists, craftspeople, and musicians, it is an honor to be able to support them and showcase art as the centerpiece of this town once again,” said Karen Schumacher, Chair of the Bisbee Arts Commission.
