Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia

The Gosport Arts Festival is held in beautiful Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia.

An historic seaport city in southeastern Virginia, the City of Portsmouth is centrally located within the region referred to as South Hampton Roads.  It is bordered by four neighboring cities:  Chesapeake, Norfolk, Suffolk and Virginia Beach. It is also within easy driving distance of Newport News, Hampton, Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg.  The Norfolk – Virginia Beach – Newport News Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) ranks as the 27th largest in the United States with a total population of more than 1.5 million.

The show is physically located on High Street, which is a four-lane asphalt-paved street with a raised-curb grass median.

Artist spaces are laid out with the back of the space against the center divider’s curb.

Visitors to the show walk in the outside (or parking) lane or on the wide brick-paved sidewalks.  Much of the street is tree-lined.  The neighborhood consists of quaint shops, popular restaurants, Tidewater Community College’s Visual Arts Center, and the Children’s Museum of Virginia. Ferries from Norfolk load and discharge at the entrance to the show.
