It was a record year for the annual Artisphere festival, which took over Downtown Greenville last month. Not only did the festival celebrate a milestone year, but it celebrated a milestone impact. We’re breaking it down by the numbers:

  • $14.1 million. That’s the economic impact Artisphere reports from the 2024 event.
  • 100,000. That’s how many patrons filled the streets, compared to 92,500 in 2023.
  • 140. That’s how many artists were selected from 1,100 applicants to participate this year.
  • 28. That’s how many states those 140 artists hailed from.
  • $18,229. That’s the average artist sales recorded from this year’s festival, the highest in Artisphere history.

In case you missed it, we looked back at the facts and figures from the original festival. See how they compare to this year’s numbers.
