Druid City Arts Festival

The Druid City Arts Festival’s (DCAF) goal is to provide a quality arts and music festival, while also educating, engaging, and inspiring both youth and adults about the arts and humanities within the Tuscaloosa community. Throughout the years, many “undiscovered” artists who are now in textbooks, galleries, and museums have exhibited at DCAF.

DCAF strives to showcase work of exceptional quality and creativity by artists in a variety of areas, which include: contemporary art and sculpture, contemporary craft, traditional/heritage craft, and folk/self-taught artists.
