Every spring and fall since 1973, artists have descended upon the Beverly Gardens Park to showcase their works to browsers and buyers at this festival (once called the Affaire in the Gardens). This year will feature more than 240 artists exhibiting paintings, sculptures, watercolors, photography, and much more. Set on four blocks along the grassy Santa Monica Boulevard between Rodeo and Rexford Drive, the event will include something for everyone with free kids’ activities, food trucks and beer & wine gardens with live music. This season’s art show includes the fun theme Games and Puzzles in Art and artists are playing along, from live-painting subjects solving puzzles to a jeweler conducting live quizzes about copper and rewarding winners with handcrafted rings. Those without a Beverly Hills-sized wallet will appreciate the free parking across the street from show grounds.
