The First Annual Bucks County Plein Air Festival

  • Downtown Doylestown 20 South Main Street Doylestown, PA, 18901 (map)

Discover Doylestown is proud to support the First Annual Bucks County Plein Air Festival!

Up to 50 competing artists will paint throughout Bucks County, Pennsylvania the week of June 6, 2016. The juried show will culminate in an awards presentation and gala on June 10 at Bucks County Community College's annual Tyler Tasting Party, and a Quick Draw demonstration and competition during a public festival on June 11. The organizing committee is excited to welcome some of the country's most accomplished artists to vibrant and historic Bucks County.

Join in for a week of plein air painting in verdant and historic Bucks County, located in the Philadelphia countryside. Paint the rolling landscapes, lakes and rivers, covered bridges, stone farm houses, and historic estates that have inspired artists for more than a century.

Jointly hosted by Bucks County Community College, the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce and Alan Fetterman Fine Art, proceeds will support art scholarships and arts programing in Bucks County.
