2024 Festival – two art filled weekends! 

Two events will highlight the Festival in 2024. The first is a three-day plein air painting event with over 40 local and international artists participating.  Paint Peggy’s Cove will be held between July 5th and 7th in the village of Peggy’s Cove. Artworks produced will be offered for sale in the Yurt located in the center of the village.  A Children’s Art Tent will offer free creative activities next to the Yurt. On the second weekend of the Festival, between July 12th and 14th, is the Studio Tour, including over 70 studio artists, galleries and art groups welcoming visitors through their doors.  This is a unique opportunity to meet and interact with painters, potters, sculptors, wood and glass workers, and jewelry artists at work in their studios.

Between festivals, you can always find fine art and crafts in our beautiful catchment area.  Many studios and galleries are open year-round.  To view a list of artists and galleries, visit our Studio Tour page.
