Plein Air Festival Time

by Sarah Judson May 03, 2013

Plein Air Festivals have become a popular sport, not just for participating (often world class) artists but also for collectors and spectators. They can also benefit a region by calling attention to historic districts, vanishing landscapes, local art associations and other nonprofit organizations. Often there is music, food and other events that add to the festivities. Here is a list of upcoming festivals, in roughly chronological order: Florida's Forgotten Coast May 2-12 pleinairfl.com Wayne, Pennsylvania May 6-10 waynepleinair.com Carmel, California May 16-19 carmelartfestival.org Council Bluffs, Iowa May 18 - 19 bluffsarts.org Paso Robles, California May 25 prcity.com/fota/ Canandaigua, New York June 6-9 canandaiguaarts.com Ogden, Utah June 7 - 8 ogdenartsfestival.com Gettysburg, Pennsylvania June 8-16 gettysburgfestival.org Cedarburg, Wisconsin June 12 - 23 pleinaircedarburg.blogspot.com San Clemente, California June 15 - 23 paintsanclemente.com Los Gatos, California June 18-21 lgpleinair.org Richmond, Virginia June 10-15 pleinairrichmond.com Frederick, Maryland June 21-22 easelsinfrederick.org Temecula, California June 21 - 23 cityoftemecula.org Annapolis, Maryland June 26 - 28 marylandhall.org Telluride, Colorado June 28-July 4 and Aspen, Colorado July 7-13 telluridepleinair.com Red Wing, Minnesota June 24-29 redwingartsassociation.org Ellicott City, Maryland July 11 - 15 visithowardcounty.com Easton, Maryland July 15-21 pleinaireaston.com Door County, Wisconsin July 22-27 doorcountypleinair.com Richfield, Wisconsin July 27 richfieldhistoricalsociety.org Castine, Maine July 27 castinearts.org Driggs, Idaho July 24 - August 3 driggspleinair.org Wexford, Ireland July 29 - August 6 artintheopen.org Ocean City, Maryland August 8 - 10 artleagueofoceancity.org Estes Park, Colorado August 10 - 22 estesarts.com Dexter, Michigan August 13 - 17 dextermi.gov/arts Saranac Lake, NY August 15 - 18 saranaclakeartworks.com Milwaukee, Wisconsin August 16 - 18 milwaukeedomesartfestival.com Bennington, Vermont September 3 - 8 pleinair-vermont.com Mendocino, California September 9 - 14 mendocinoartcenter.org Solomons, Maryland September 18 - 21 solomonsmaryland.com IPAP Worldwide Paint Out, September 13 - 15 ipap.homestead.com Holmdel, New Jersey, September 22 bayonetfarmarts.org Escalante Canyon, Utah September 27-28 everettruessdays.org Sonoma, California September 16 - 21 sonomapleinair.com Charlottesville, Virginia October 1-6 warmspringsgallery.com Marble Falls, Texas October 18 - 19 Paintthetownmftx.org Sedona, Arizona October 19 - 26 sedonapleinairfestival.com
