Held against the backdrop of Sedona’s breathtaking red rock vistas, the Sedona Arts Festival will present its 27th annual fine art festival on Saturday, Oct. 7 and Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017.
Attracting artists from across the country, this renowned festival will showcase a diverse line up of 125 juried artists as well as live music, food and art fun for the kids. The Sedona Arts Festival is held on the campus of Sedona Red Rock High School, 990 Upper Red Rock Loop Road in West Sedona.
Over 100 pieces will be represented in two and three dimensional mediums—paintings, prints, drawings, photography, sculpture, ceramic, fiber and jewelry. These will be displayed and offered for sale in the Fine Art Gallery tent with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Sedona Arts Festival’s Scholarships and Grants Program which financially supports art education in the greater Sedona area. Since the Festival’s inception in 1989, nearly $300,000 has been distributed to arts education groups as well as to graduating seniors pursuing higher education in the arts.
The Sedona Arts Festival also offers a variety of food choices, raffle prizes, a Gourmet Gallery with locally produced kitchen and bath items, and the interactive KidZone, which gives children 12 and under the chance to create their own masterpieces with help from local artists. A variety of make-and-take art projects are available at no cost thanks to the generous support of the Arizona Community Foundation of Sedona.
Tickets can be purchased for $10 online in advance at www.sedonaartsfestival.org. Admission at the gate is $12. Children 12 and under are free. Coupons for a $2 discount may be used at the gate and are available at all local hotels, the Sedona Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center and various local businesses.
