We are excited to announce that the Gloucester Arts Festival has been voted one of the best art events in Eastern Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine!!
Our third place finish, Occasion for the Arts and the Boardwalk Art Show placed first and second, (both festivals have been around for more than 50 years!) is one we are very proud of. Excellent artists, exciting events, an engaged community and a whole host of dedicated committee members and volunteers have quickly made the Gloucester Arts Festival the place to be every June!
We are looking forward to our 2021 festival when the Plein Air artists return to paint the beautiful landscapes, waterways, and marshes of our region. New events that will be added to our already exciting lineup are the Heart of the River Studio Tour, Village Arts Day, along with recurring events such as the Virginia Symphony, a new mural, and more sculptures to hunt for on Main Street!
