Fall Arts Festival at Josephine Sculpture Park

Sunday, Sep. 11th from 11 am – 6 pm

This hands-on festival connects the community with the arts & the land in the most experiential manner and offers a host of artistic experiences to the public. The KECU music stage presents musicians, dancers and storytelling while local artists & organizations conduct free demonstrations & activities where you can explore book binding, sculpture, pottery wheel, fabric dyeing, art scavenger hunts, walking tours & a few other surprises.

Visitors may also create their own cast aluminum relief sculpture to take home at the Hot Metal Pour or blow a glass ornament to keep ($30-35). Several art benches will be created and displayed at JSP as part of the community art exhibition and you can be part of that too! There is something for every age and ability at JSP! Soar above the sculptures in a hot air balloon ride, or simply walk the quiet paths and view new sculptures or visit the Nature Photography Exhibit inside the barn.

Event parking is $5 and food vendors will be onsite including Crank & Boom ice-cream, La Fiesta Grande, Longshot Lobsta and Mr. Gyro’s.
