The two day festival is open to artists from throughout the country. The juried show will exhibit original works from 75 artists from throughout the east coast. Over a dozen artists are new to the show this year and are extremely excited to be a part of such a unique and established Festival. Exhibitors include watercolors, oil & acrylic, graphics, drawings, photography, jewelry, sculpture, and pottery. The Festival provides artists and opportunity to display and sell their creative work and compete for awards.

The New World Festival of the Arts is a family oriented outdoor show for spectators of all ages. The Festival provides awareness of the current trends in the visual arts while acquainting visitors with the historic town of Manteo. This once a year show coupled with so many other artistic and cultural events makes Roanoke Island a very special place in the hearts of its residents and the many visitors who come and visit the island every year.
