The Art Market was first held at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn in 2002. Since then, it has grown in reputation for having some of the finest artists in the region participating. While many artists return year after year, citing Honey Horn as one of their favorite spots on the ‘art festival circuit,’ first time artists are also presenting this year.

Honey Horn is a name that has existed for over two centuries, possessing a rich cultural and natural history legacy. It is described by many as the last significant parcel of undeveloped open space on Hilton Head Island. Consisting of 69 pristine acres at the juncture of the Cross Island Parkway and Highway 278, the property is filled with salt marshes, stands of live oaks, open fields, and a unique collection of some of the oldest structures that exist on Hilton Head Island. The Discovery House at the Coastal Discovery Museum opened in October 2007 and is open daily from 9 – 4:30 and Sunday 11-3. For more information, please visit the Museum’s website at
