Each July, Martinsville gears up for Artie Fest - an annual community celebration of all things Artesian. The festival kicks off on Friday night with live music, food vendors and Taps on the Square. This year's concert will feature popular regional performer Jake Dodds.
Saturday brings a 5K run/walk, car show, more live music, kid's activities and more, culminating in everyone's favorite event - Cinema on the Square! A classic, family-friendly film is chosen each year and the whole of Washington Street is shut down for a movie under the stars. See the Cinema on the Square listing for this year's feature film.
