Marin Civic Center off Highway 101
San Rafael, California

The Marin Art Festival is our county’s lawn party for the arts and “one of the most beautiful out door art festivals in the nation.” The event now in its 15th year, features work from over 250 artists from across the globe who are eager to share their work and discuss their creative process. The festival will host an artist preview and silent auction as well as continue it popular hourly raffle for “art bucks”, $100 towards the purchase of art with participating artists. The festival is full of color and surprise and offers a unique line up of entertainment including whimsical stilt walkers, hands-on art projects for children, and live music featuring some of the best Bay Area bands. As is tradition, Taiko drumming starts off the festival each morning. Back by popular demand will be the Marin Dance Showcase Stage featuring many dance styles from Hula to Hip Hop! This year's Master Artist is Tom Killion of West Marin. His woodcut prints of California and the Sierras are internationally celebrated.
