Plein Air Art Festival New Bern - May 14 - 21

The 3rd Annual Plein Air Art Festival takes place in New Bern from May 14 – 21.

Festival attendees can walk through Historic New Bern and interact with the 55 nationally and internationally acclaimed plein air painters as they set up their easels around the town and create their in-the-moment paintings. Painters will produce nearly 400 works on site in a competition for the Best of Show Koffenberger Award, among other awards and recognitions.

Youth and adult amateur artists can compete for ribbons and cash awards in the annual Quick Paint competition. There are also painting demonstrations, workshops, art displays and sales. It’s all in historic New Bern at the New Bern Farmers Market at 421 South Front Street, New Bern, NC. The festival is free, except for workshops, the Saturday award celebration, and the fee to enter the Quick Paint competition.

Pop-up events are also happening in Beaufort and Oriental, with dates to be determined. Find out more at NC Plein Air Art Festival.
