Vermont Plein Air Festival: Barns & Bridges

August 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

A unique three-day painting event for artists and art aficionados alike. Whether you are a participating artist (Continental breakfast and map of painting sites available at check-in) or a casual observer, there is something for everyone. Artists gather to paint in the fresh air and meet new friends while visitors have the rare opportunity to see art in the making. A sidewalk art show, free children’s paint-outs, and other activities make for the perfect family venture. With its abundance of covered bridges, quaint villages, and historic barns, the Mad River Valley is the perfect place to experience painting in the great outdoors.
