This is an old event, from 2014
The 19th annual New Milford Outdoor Art Festival is being held on June 14th from 10:00am to 6:00pm and 15th from 12:00pm to 5:00pm on the Village Green in New Milford, CT. It is sponsored by the New Milford Historical Society and Museum. Artists love this show. Crowds come to buy art and not ice cream. Testimony to its success is the extremely high rate of returning artists every year. This year, in addition to fine arts, we are including fine crafts. The fine crafts will be located in a separate section of the Green. The art show is a major fund raiser for the historical society. The historical society is a non-profit organization which maintains a public museum, and offers educational and cultural activities encouraging an appreciation of art, history and music. For additional information, please contact Pat Lathrope at palathrope@gmail.com To download the application to show your work at the event, please click here.
