Art is a Happening!

The Indian Wells Arts Festival

is a colorful, diverse ecosystem of art with more than 200 juried artists traveling from across the nation and as far as Japan, Canada, Central and South America, the United Kingdom, Transylvania and beyond each year to showcase their contemporary and traditional fine art and high quality craft.

Art enthusiasts stroll the concourse of its world-famous venue, the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, transformed into an artisan village and festive outdoor marketplace with thousands of one-of-a-kind pieces of art for sale amid live entertainment with jazz melodies floating on the air; perfect cocktails and foodies’ delights available in the shaded open-air pavilion; and hands-on artist demonstrations ranging from textile weaving, painting, and sculpting. Engaging interactive activities for children and big kids at heart include an art station and a free commemorative photo opportunity. The Festival is consistently ranked as one of the 100 Best Fine Art Shows in the country by Sunshine Artist magazine and Best of the Best Art Festivals by readers of Palm Springs Life magazine.
