The Southwest Arts Festival®, Indio 2016 will be held on January 29, 30 and 31, 2016. Celebrating its 30th Anniversary, the Southwest Arts Festival® will once again be held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio California, a Coachella Valley landmark, featuring the desert’s natural landscape and sweeping mountain ranges. Every year the Festival continues to evolve and attract a high caliber of talented artists and unique artwork. This year’s festival will feature interactive art, with pottery, glass blowing and fine art painting scheduled to be on display. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of food and beverage options while casually walking the grounds to the subtle sounds of jazz music.
Last year’s the festival featured over 270 artists from around the world and was recognized as one of the Top 100 Events in North America by Travel Magazine. The festival includes traditional, contemporary and abstract fine works of art and quality crafts. The Festival’s reputation for first-class quality and professional integrity make it one of the country’s finest. As one of largest annual event fundraisers supporting several Indio based non-profits, the festival is exceptionally fortunate to have over 200 community leaders and volunteers who contribute numerous hours to make certain that the Festival is successful. We look forward to seeing you there!
