BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) -

A different kind of arts festival is happening today in Bay St. Louis -- one that encompasses all genres of art, including music, art, food, film and literature. It's the fourth annual ArtsAlive! festival.

Through a multitude of platforms, the ArtsAlive! program offers various spots for artists to showcase their work, as well as for new artists to learn from the work of others.

Various showcases are held, spread throughout the festival area, to highlight the different genres and mediums used by artists. Additionally, artists from all over the region are set up, showing off and selling their artwork. Cash awards are offered to both student and professional artists who are displaying their pieces.

New to the festival this year is the Short Film Showcase, which happens Saturday evening after the Singer/Songwriter Showcase. Local filmmakers will display their works in a mini-film festival.

Free arts education sessions are offered at the festival's Teaching Artists section and are open to the entire community. Multiple contests are also held for writers, singer-songwriters, and even amateur chefs, where the public can vote on the artwork in each category.

The festival is being held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Old Town Bay St. Louis. For a full list of scheduled events, please visit the festival's website here.
