About the NoCo Arts Fest

The North Country Arts Festival brings the North Country community together to celebrate the arts. This month-long, county-wide event encourages tourism and economic activity throughout St. Lawrence County by showcasing our arts industry, a critical component of our regional identity. Popular events, such as Artists’ Studio Tour, PorchFest, Remington Arts Festival, plus a new arts market during the Ives Park Concert Series will be held within the time-frame of the NoCo Arts Fest, as well as lots of events held by our partners and friends across the county!
