Our nationally recognized, juried festival features a premier roster of  175 national and international fine artists exhibiting in a variety of categories - including painting, photography, sculpture, fiber, printmaking, mixed media, glass, ceramics, jewelry, wood, graphics and print making. All artwork is available for purchase in a wide variety of price ranges, subject matter and style - sure to inspire everyone. 
In 2017 the festival moved back to its historic home on Main Street to a great reception from patrons and merchants. In 2019 the festival continues to deepen its roots downtown establishing Elm Street as a highly active festival area and connecting the art show loop of downtown with the shaded lane of Church, featuring high end merchants, restaurants and landscaped sidewalks. Westport’s 46th Fine Arts Festival is a mid-summer highlight for collectors and residents from the Tri-State region, New England and beyond,  
In addition to displayed works, this year the festival is developing art demonstrations with a special feature on emerging artists plus returning the Kids Create area featuring hands on projects for all ages. Patrons will enjoy high quality outdoor dining options from sophisticated tastes to kid friendly food.  Couple this with live music interspersed throughout the festival and summer bars, lovers of art, books and community have a reason to plan a destination day in Westport CT.

Two high profile events - one time and location! Connected to the Fine Arts Festival is the renowned Westport Library Annual Book Sale, each year drawing 1000’s of book lovers to pour over more than 100,000 gently used books, records, CDs and DVDs , categorized and under tented cover, creating a culture filled weekend throughout downtown Westport for adults and families.
