Returning to La Quinta Civic Center Campus, Thursday through Sunday, March 7 – 10, 2019, 10am to 5pm, the #1 Fine Art Festival and #1 Fine Craft Festival in the nation offers four fabulous days of art, live entertainment, delicious food and drink and creativity at your fingertips!

Get your tickets in advance at and go directly to entry gates, avoiding lines! To begin your creative quest, pick up a Festival program from a cheerful volunteer to scout your favorite art categories. 

Meet and mingle with 220 juried contemporary artists exhibiting in every creative media and price point. Learn about their inspiration, and how they craft their work.

In addition to the sensational art, enjoy fare from Bristol Farms Café, Fisherman’s Market & Grill, Shanghai Reds, and Aspen Mills Bakery & Café. Stella Artois, the official beer sponsor, will be served at all bar locations on site.  


A rotating lineup of performers will keep you entertained: from the talented guitar stylings of Scott Carter and Michael Anthony Gagliardi to the lively headliners Trio NV, Art of Sax, and CV Weekly Award winner Shaken Not Stirred.

On Saturday, join the fun to finger-paint a public participation mural, designed and orchestrated by acclaimed artist Peter Tigler. Unfolding near the amphitheater, the mural celebrates our fabulous desert lifestyle and is made possible by the California Desert Arts Council. After your creative contribution, you’ve earned dessert—indulge in specialty sweets from Brandini Toffee or refreshing E & E Pel’s Italian Ices.

Celebrate with us – and take home unique treasures created just for you!
