Following the success of the first “Fine Art Festival” in 2021, the West Hartford Art League will host the second annual version of the event on Saturday and Sunday, September 24 and 25, on the grounds of its Buena Vista Road campus.

This year’s festival will feature the works of 40 Connecticut artists, working in a variety of mediums, including painting, photography, pottery, stained glass, drawing, and more.

The artwork will be exhibited and offered for sale under tents set up in the park-like grounds.

Free entry and open to all. Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 24 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 25 and will take place rain or shine.

Food trucks will also be available on both days, including the At Paul and Vinnie’s food truck (belonging to Carbone’s) and Lobster tails. The Capriciously tipsy truck will be there both days serving libations, including craft cocktails from their vintage VW Bus Bar.

According to Roxanne Stachelek, executive director of the West Hartford Art League, other highlights will give children the opportunity to paint each day from noon to 2 p.m. in the “Kids Corner”. Live music will include performances by Heather McLarney on Saturday from noon to 2 p.m., followed by Bill Benson Saturday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Mama Train! Sunday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

The West Hartford Art League parking lot will be closed to vehicles during the festival, but attendees can park on Buena Vista Road or the Solomon Schechter Day School parking lot across the street.
