LaQuinta Arts Festival is held on the spectacular grounds of the La Quinta Civic Center Campus, a life-size picture postcard framed by majestic mountain, lush green lawns, and a lake.  This spectacular outdoor gallery extolled by Art Fair SourceBook as "the most stunning festive site in the country" is currently ranked #1 Fine Art & #1 Fine Craft Festival in the Nation.


Hosting 230 of the nation's for most contemporary artists, this four day show attracts an affluent demographic and wealthy snowbirds who have second homes in the southern California desert. The festival runs concurrent with the HITS Horse Show which attracts the most accomplished equestrianriders in the world and is the weekend before the BNP Tennis Open March 9-22nd.


La Quinta Arts Festival requires the Artist to pay a show fee of 20% of all art sales made at, or as a result of participating in La Quinta Arts Festival.

A low booth fee of $275 for a 12x12 space means minimal up-front investment to participate, and allows LQAF to be successful only if the artists are successful.  The 230 participating Artists are the stars of our show.  Art patrons come for the high quality art!
