The Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival was inspired by the history of Thomasville's vibrant plantation community. Throughout the ante- and postbellum periods, sporting and wildlife artists enjoyed the patronage of Thomasville's plantation families, often journeying to the plantations to observe wildlife, enjoy the sporting culture, and practice their craft. The Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival was designed and drawn from Thomasville's cultural history to match the tastes and needs of great wildlife art collectors with the best artists working today, and has become one of America's premier wildlife and sporting art festivals.

Enjoy live demonstrations, workshops, dinners, plein air painting, exhibits and, of course, great food! The festival culminates in a weekend featuring 60 of the best wildlife artists displaying and selling their works at the Thomasville Center for the Arts​.
