Event Summary
The Westhampton Beach Festival of the Arts enters its eleventh year in 2019, returning to the Great Lawn on Main Street in Westhampton Beach. This event started strong and remains one of Paragon’s most powerful events, annually placing in the Top 50 fine art festivals in the nation. 

Westhampton Beach is a bustling Main Street downtown area featuring shopping at classic boutiques, dining in cafes, bistros and Zagat-rated restaurants as well as being home to a state-of-the-art performing arts facility.  This, along with the exceptional demographics of this portion of Long Island, makes it a perfect location for an art festival.

Remember, Paragon events are always about:  Original  -  Quality  -  Boutique!

General Information

This is a “blind” jury process that means artist scoring is based solely on the images presented without consideration of the artist name, artist location, or reference to additional information such as websites. Juror decisions are based 70% upon the quality of work portrayed in the artwork images submitted for the jury process, and 30% on your booth presentation image. If you do not submit a booth image you will automatically lose 3 points off your final score. 


NOTE:  No images including the booth image should have the artist or any signage with the artist name or business name visible and should represent the setup we will actually see at the event. Images are viewed simultaneously in a horizontal format.
