The inaugural Bethesda Fine Arts Festival, which took place over the weekend was a spectacular success. I would guess around 20,000 to 25,000 people showed up to view the work of 122 artists from around the nation. From talking to the artists and crafts people, sales were quite brisk as well, which is always good to hear. I sold about twenty drawings.
This fine arts festival is well on its way to become one of the top ten outdoor art festivals in the country. Area artists should really consider doing it next year. Contact Bethesda Up! for details for next year's festival.
