Esteemed art show returning to Bethesda

May 4, 2013 by  

More than 100 artists from across the United States and Canada will soon be arriving in Bethesda to showcase and sell their work.

In just over a week’s time, the annual Fine Arts Festival will be returning to the city’s downtown area. Business card printing may see a boost in demand as the exhibitors prepare to form relationships with new customers.

The two-day event is the highest-ranking art show of its kind in the state of Maryland. Those who attend will have a chance to explore dozens of booths featuring various forms of contemporary art. Some vendors will be selling paintings or photographs, while others will be offering handmade jewelry, furniture, or ceramics.

The festival will include live entertainment and a play area for children, and attendees will be able to purchase food at the event. Employees from Mamma Lucia Restaurant, Hard Times Cafe, Freddy’s Lobster and Clams, and Yamas Mediterranean Grill will be on hand to serve selected items from their menus. Haagen-Dazs ice cream will also be available, along with a variety of beverages.

The Bethesda Fine Arts Festival will be held on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12. It will run from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm on Saturday and from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm on Sunday. The event will take place in the ‘Woodmont Triangle’, which includes Del Ray, Auburn, and Norfolk Avenues.

There will be no charge for admission, and attendees will be able to park free of charge in the public facility on Auburn Avenue.
