Keeseville Community Arts Festival
July 22, 2022July 23, 2022July 24, 2022

The Keeseville Community Arts Festival invites community members and visitors to celebrate art and artists in the hamlet.

Visiting artists begin painting outdoors at sites in and around Keeseville on the Tuesday before the community-wide festival kicks off, and their works will displayed in an art show and sale that is just one of the arts events planned throughout the festival, along with live music, theater, and art demonstrations.

This year the festival will include a new Arts in the Park event on Saturday morning, featuring live art demonstrations by local potters, jewelers, Adirondack furniture makers, and musicians; and free face painting and arts activities for kids, including a tie dye workshop.

Artistry Community Theatre will have live musical theater performances during the festival.

At the annual Plein Air Art Show & Sale hosted by AdkAction, festival goers can check out over 100 newly created works of art by 40 talented artists, showing the beautiful landscapes and architecture of Keeseville. The show kicks off with a wine and cheese reception on Friday night, and the works can be seen and purchased throughout the weekend.
