The 34th Annual Arts In The Park Festival is this weekend in beautiful downtown Blue Ridge! This is one of our favorite weekends of the year. The festival is sponsored by the fabulous Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Association who does an outstanding job bringing and keeping the arts in our beloved town. Their Mission is to:

And they do a darn good job at striving towards reaching this goal! Arts In the Park is just one of several events that they have throughout the year and it is awesome.

This festival has grown over the years and boasts some of the finest arts and crafts in the southeast. As in the past, all applicants for the festival will be juried in order to maintain the tradition as a premier show. The quality and diversity of the arts and crafts presented improve each year.
