The Carriage Barn Arts Center is excited to announce our 1st Annual Waveny Arts Festival to be held on Sunday, October 1st, 2023 from 10am-4pm. This inaugural outdoor arts fair, presented by the Carriage Barn in partnership with the New Canaan Parks & Rec Department, will feature 30-40 mixed media artists and artisans including painters, photographers, potters, fiber artists, jewelry designers, sculptors, and woodworkers. Visitors will have the opportunity to engage with each exhibitor present and learn about their craft and creative path. Every artist/artisan selected will have an individual booth to display and sell their unique pieces. Local music groups will perform throughout the day and food vendors will be on site. There will also be hands-on arts and crafts projects for kids. The Carriage Barn anticipates that the Waveny Arts Festival will become a well-loved community arts event for years to come.
We will be accepting applications from fine artists and artisans through August 20, 2023. Notifications of acceptance will be sent on a rolling basis. The festival will happen rain or shine! Artists who are accepted to exhibit must provide their own tent (10’ x 10’), display materials and tent furniture. Weights to secure the tent are mandatory. All work must be original to the exhibiting artist and not for resale. Artists must be on-site for the entirety of the festival. Set up will be from 8am-10am on Sunday, October 1 and breakdown will be from 4:00-5:30pm on the same day.
