36th Flame Tree Art's Festival

Visual arts, Performing arts, Cultural Arts, Crafts, Music

​Since 1981, the FLAME TREE ARTS FESTIVAL has celebrated the natural and cultural beauty of the Northern Mariana Islands by producing a dynamic 4 day event featuring indigenous and cultural arts, music, crafts, art competition, dance and recognition of indigenous artists and cultural purveyors. The Flame Tree Festival brings together local and Pacific arts and culture in a central setting.


Feast your eyes on some of the most inspiring art collections you’ll find anywhere. Our community's galleries represent renowned artists from around the Pacific in just about every genre imaginable. Most of our artists even welcome you scheduling some one-on-one time with them for an intimate look into their creative process. 


At this community festival, art enthusiasts discover spectacular paintings, sculptures, jewelry, photography, ceramics and more, offering extraordinary art for every taste. Thousands of dollars in art will be on display, providing locals and visitors with the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind wares and meet the artists behind the work, hearing firsthand what inspires them.

Plus, enjoy a variety of local activities and performances throughout the 4 day event, including live music, hands-on activities and art happenings. Schools will be afforded space to showcase, sell and promote the arts crafted in their schools.

One of the things that makes this work well is a community-centered approach. We will enlist the help of parents, students, principals, and residents with whom we already have a relationship stemming from our partnerships with local schools, businesses, government entities and organizations.
