KilGogh Arts Festival

Thursday March 28 - Saturday March 30, 2019

The KilGogh Arts Festival aims to provide an opportunity for local and regional artists to exhibit their art and make the festival an East Texas art experience for the community. KilGogh attracts artists and visitors from across East Texas, the Shreveport/Bossier area and Dallas/Fort Worth region. Started by local art enthusiasts, this event has grown each year since its inaugural event in March 2013, and is now managed by the Kilgore Main Street program.


The KilGogh Arts Festival is returning for a seventh year and this year we're taking the theme "Gogh Big or Go Home" seriously with the biggest festival yet! With two locations and three days of activities, you won't want to miss out on KilGogh 2019. Read more about each event below.

Due to the success of the KilGogh Arts Festival, an additional event has been added to the festival for 2019.


The Exclusive Preview of KilGogh will take place on Thursday March 28, from 7pm-10pm at the Old Post Office and the Texan Theater in Historic Downtown Kilgore. The event will feature a first viewing of the art exhibits, artist's seminars and  demonstrations, wine and cheese pairing with cheese from Scardello in Dallas, gourmet food stations and performances by local musicians. The art awards will be presented after judging by our esteemed panel which includes, O Rufus Lovett, Tiffany Jehorek and Bob Hallmark.


Tickets are $75 per person and are limited.
