Despite the gloomy weather, hundreds of people attended the 24th ‘Art in the Square’ event this past weekend.

The three-day juried arts festival, which took place April 26-28, is an annual event hosted by the Southlake Women’s Club, a community support group. Held in the Southlake Town Square, the festival donates all proceeds to local charities that benefit women, children, and families.

Leading up to this year’s event, Art in the Square had dispersed over $3 million over the prior two decades, including $130,000 in 2023 alone, reported NBC 5 DFW.

On April 27, the event’s social page reiterated that the event was still on despite potential precipitation. One user empathized with the artists who traveled to Southlake from across North America.

“I feel so sorry for all the artists coming from everywhere.. with all their experiences to get here.. trying to make a few a few bucks,” read the Instagram comment.

Of the 650 artists who applied to join the Art in the Square, only 150 were selected by a jury to participate. The artists hailed from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Fortunately, April 28 appeared to have been a drier day for the event.

“The weather is amazing and we are having a great time. Come out and visit all our artists, food and beverage vendors. Live music on two stages,” the Art in the Square Instagram account posted.
