La Encantada Fine Art Festival
Saturday, April 20th to Sunday, April 21st, 10:00am at 2905 E Skyline Dr, Tucson, AZ 85718
The La Encantada Fine Art Festival series has grown to become one of the most juried fine art festivals in Southern Arizona.  Hosted on three separate weekends throughout the year, the festival curates a diverse group of emerging and established sculptors, jewelers, painters, and mixed media artists.  With limited exhibit space made available at each festival, each event will focus on a rotating group of display fine artisans. 
 
‚ÄčThe festival partners with the Southern Arizona Artists Guild (SAAG) to provide live art demonstrations in the onsite gallery and live music.  Artists can only be juried into a maximum of two of the three annual festivals.  Artists can select their preferences on dates on the artist application.
