Bethesda Fine Arts Festival 2015


The annual Bethesda Fine Arts Festival is back and better than ever! The two-day event is a unique showcase of anything and everything art. Highlighted at this year’s festival will be 140 contemporary artists from nearly 25 states and Canada looking to sell their original fine art and original crafts. Browse between ceramics, clothing fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, photography, paintings and much more.

Ranked #78 on the 200 Best Shows by Sunshine Art in 2008, Bethesda Fine Arts Fest has experienced steady growth while evolving into Maryland’s most renowned fine arts show.

The festival will also feature continuous live entertainment from some of the region’s best bands. Get your fix of rock, jazz and reggae from bands like Jason Masi, Sweetnova, ilyAimy, Hard Swimmin’ Fish and more!

This event is perfect for the whole family and there will even be an area specifically dedicated to Children’s Activities on Auburn Avenue each day from 11 AM – 4 PM. Nothing says fun to a kid like some chalk and a sidewalk full of open space to create.

While it is technically all fun and games at the Bethesda Fine Arts Festival, you will also get a chance to dig into some local eats on Restaurant Row! Enjoy Hard Times Café, Mamma Lucia, or Smoke BBQ and top it off with some delicious Haagen-Dazs ice cream (also kid approved).

Admission is free and the festival will go on rain or shine, so don’t miss out on your chance to explore and let your creative side run wild.
