Every year, the Arts Festival continues to evolve and attract a high caliber of talented artists and unique artwork. This year’s festival will feature interactive art displays and live music, with pottery, glass and fine art painting scheduled to be on display. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of food and beverage options while casually walking the grounds.

Last year’s the festival drew record attendance, featuring 249 artists from around the world. Recognized as one of the Top 100 Events in North America by Travel Magazine, the festival includes traditional, contemporary, and abstract fine works of art and quality crafts. The festival’s reputation for first-class quality and professional integrity make it one of the country’s finest juried art festivals. As one of largest annual fundraisers supporting several Coachella Valley based nonprofits, the festival is exceptionally fortunate to have over 200 community leaders and volunteers who contribute numerous hours to make certain that the Festival is successful.

This festival is hosted by the Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce.  Title Sponsors are the Desert Sun and the City of Indio.  It is presented by CBS Local 2, Eisenhower Medical Center and Cambria.
