La Quinta Arts Festival will celebrate its 30th Anniversary in 2012 on the spectacular grounds of the La Quinta Civic Center Campus, a short drive from legendary Palm Springs, California. The Campus is a life-size picture postcard framed by majestic mountains, lush green lawns, and a lake - a spectacular outdoor gallery extolled by Art Fair SourceBook as "the most stunning festival site in the country."
Hosting 230 of the nation's foremost contemporary artists, this four day show attracts an affluent demographic and many wealthy snowbirds who have second homes in the desert. Art sales consistently exceed $2 million each year. The festival runs concurrent with the BNP Paribas Open, an international tennis event, attended by 350,000 of a highly appealing demographic as well as the polo finals - both located a few miles from the festival.
La Quinta Arts Festival requires the Artist to pay a show fee of 20% of all art sales made at, or as a result of participating in La Quinta Arts Festival.A low booth fee of $275 for a 12x12 space means minimal up-front investment to participate, and allows LQAF to be successful only if the artists are successful.
