    Name: Summer ArtFest at Whitefish
    Date: June 28, 2023
    Time: 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM MDT
    Event Description:

    We are proud to introduce, Summer ArtFest at Whitefish, June 28th - June 30th, 2019!

    The weekend will be bustling with activity - artist demonstrations, live auction, open downtown galleries, food and drink, panel discussions, live music, a silent auction as well as artist-held classes. Encompassing the entire town, this is the inaugural event to transform Whitefish into the next fine art destination of the West.


    Perfectly poised already, the downtown area houses fifteen galleries, numerous artists reside within the city limits, and not to mention the drastic influx of visitors this area sees! We are looking forward to working with the community in order to engage everyone and reel in all corners of the art world to one picturesque location.


    Whether its just you, your gaggle of friends or the whole family, the weekend will be filled with live demonstrations from artists, engaging discussions, cocktail hours, and animated auctions. Come for the art, or come for the inspiration and good food. Either way, we look forward to seeing you the last weekend in June!
