2020 Festival of Art in Stout Park
The Festival is held August 1st and 2nd, from 10am - 5pm Saturday and 10am - 4pm Sunday. Our outdoor event is set in the tree lined pathways of Stout Park, surrounding Manley Art Center and Gallery, at 433 Oak Street, Brookings, Oregon. Stout Park sits a short block above, and clearly visible from, downtown Brookings and Highway 101, providing easy access, lovely ocean views and cool breezes. The Brookings area is a popular tourist destination with six state beaches, parks and recreation sites within minutes of the downtown. This is a rain or shine event.
This juried exhibition of quality fine arts and crafts allows visitors the opportunity to interact with the artists in a beautiful park setting. In its 8th successful year, the event includes separate areas for children to create their own art, a food court with wine/micro-brews and a music venue. Artist's booth spaces are well organized according to the park layout and previous vendor's suggestions, providing high exposure to visitor travel. Care is also given to artist's space placement requests. Spaces are limited creating higher dollar sales for accepted artists.
Most 2019 vendors reported above average sales. The 2019 festival saw over 1,000 visitors and that number is expected to increase substantially in 2020 due to extensive advertising on all formats within both California and Oregon.
As in past years, our 2020 judges will present a Best Booth Award, gifting the recipient a free booth space for the 2021 festival.
Entries must be submitted by April 17, 2020. Submissions must include the online entry form, a printed and signed version of the online entry form with the mailing of your check for booth space.
