Held at one of the most prestigious venues in the west, the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, home to the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament. The festival transforms the outdoor grass concourse into a colorful artisan village. Indian Wells is nestled in the heart of the Palm Springs Desert Resorts area.
Join more than 10,000 art enthusiasts, collectors and serious buyers in attendance, as artists travel from across the nation and from as far as Japan, Africa, Central and South America, the United Kingdom, Europe and beyond each year to showcase their contemporary and traditional fine art and high quality craft.
The Festival is ranked in the top "30 Best Fine Art Shows" in the country by Sunshine Artist Magazine, "Best of the Best Art Festivals" by readers of Palm Springs Life Magazine, and is the #3 So-Cal Getaway by The Examiner.
Reported sales of $750,000 in 2018 are fostered by the Festival's established reputation for fine and high-quality art.
