The Gloucester Arts Festival will return to rural coastal Virginia for its fifth year, kicking off June 3, 2021 with an unveiling of sculptures on Main Street and culminating with a U.S. Navy Fleet Forces Band concert.
Throughout the month, guests can watch as plein air artists from across the mid-Atlantic paint the Heart of the River collection, competing for over $20,000 in prize money; a Virginia Symphony Orchestra free community performance under the stars; Meet the Artists during the Brews & Brine event at historic White Marsh Farm; Cocktails in the Garden with the artists at Brent & Becky’s Bulbs; the Plein Air Gala at Sussex on the York; and the visit of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Art Mobile.
