24th Annual Art in the Pass
Saturday & Sunday, April 2 and 3, 2022

After a two-year absence due to COVID-19, the 24th annual Art in the Pass returns to scenic Memorial Park, overlooking the beach and gulf waters, in Pass Christian, Mississippi, April 2-3, 2022. Our vetted fine arts festival attracts about 100 artists from 10 states and approximately 10,000 visitors from Pensacola to Baton Rouge.  We are known for our Southern hospitality and beautiful location.

In addition, the Celebrate the Gulf Marine Education Festival is held concurrently each year, this year with an added science component.

Sponsors for Art in the PASS Patron Event Announced

Festival chair Betty Sparkman said, “The mission of Art in the Pass is to support art education in Harrison and Hancock County schools. We award scholarships to rising Coast seniors who are pursuing art education plus make significant grants for art supplies to the Pass Christian School District, the Boys and Girls Club and several area high schools. This year we plan to expand our support of art education and award nearly $25,000 in scholarships and school grants.”

Art in the Pass, which works under the auspices of Pass Christian Main Street, a 501(c)(3) organization, is seeking sponsors for this year. Sponsors are a major source of revenue for the festival, which is free and open to the public. Sponsorships are available for businesses and individuals at various levels beginning at $75. Corporate sponsorships begin at the $250, and above levels include the corporate logo featured on the website and sponsors’ banner.

“Sponsorships are a wonderful way to show your civic pride and to link your business with an outstanding mission,” according to Anita Giani, Sponsor Chair.
