Admission supports arts education in the community. Tickets go on sale August 1,  2019!

October 12 – 19, 2019 marks the 15th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival, presented by the Sedona Arts Center. It is a week-long celebration of breathtaking landscapes, world-renowned artists, unique workshops, and wonderful free events. Experience as the artists paint ‘en plein air,’ where they leave the four walls of their studio behind and paint and draw in the mesmerizing landscapes of Sedona!

Ending the art events is the Fall Open Studios Tour October 25 – 27, 2019 presented by the Sedona Visual Artists’ Coalition (SVAC) and is always free to the public! The tour provides a unique opportunity to meet over 50 artists in their private studios, working in a variety of mediums. The private studios are located throughout Sedona and the Verde Valley. It is open 10 am – 5 pm on Friday and Saturday, and 12 – 5 pm Sunday. It has become one of the “can’t miss events” in Sedona!
