Event Summary
With a backdrop of the Santa Monica Mountains, the affluent suburb of Calabasas, California is located only minutes from the Malibu coastline and west Los Angeles. 2019 marks the 22nd anniversary of our beloved Fine Arts Festival where hundreds of artists and thousands of qualified collectors and art buyers converge for one incredible weekend.  Artists are encouraged to share their creative work, knowing that the quality and originality they bring greatly enrich this wonderful event!


General Information
The Calabasas Fine Arts Festival is a juried event, housed at the beautiful Calabasas Civic Center and the Commons at Calabasas, an upscale shopping and dining center in the heart of downtown Calabasas.  We offer outdoor, flat, paved surfaces, live musical entertainment and on-site/ 24-hour security throughout the event weekend. Our unique venue has great street visibility and plenty of free parking for both vendors and attendees.  All participating artists receive free glossy postcard announcements, a welcome breakfast on Saturday morning and a free commemorative travel bag. 



Exhibitor Requirements:
Original / handcrafted work by exhibitor’s own hand
Weighted canopy (unless approved by Jury)
Personal display equipment
NOTE: The Calabasas Arts Council does not rent display equipment or canopies.

Only work created by the exhibitor’s own hand will be considered and all submissions are subject to jury discretion.  Artists must submit photos of the work to be sold during the Festival.  One additional photo of the booth display is also required to help the jury see the size of the work and set up style. It is the goal of the Arts Council to raise the level of craftsmanship each year; therefore the jury process is based on the current submission information and not seniority or previous participation.  Jury acceptance is based on the quality and uniqueness of one’s work as well as the overall festival aesthetic.  When placing vendors in the show, the Arts Council will attempt to meet personal requests regarding sun direction, corner spaces and other personal needs.  Please note that there are no guarantees and the producers will also factor in the show’s overall aesthetic, competing mediums, similarity among price points, an optimal load-in/loud out timeframe and Fire Marshall Codes.


Booth Information

All artists must provide their own weighted canopy (unless approved by Jury) and personal display equipment.  The Calabasas Arts Council does not rent display equipment or canopies.
