The Ojai Art Center is kicking off their 44th annual Art in the Park celebration Memorial weekend on May 29 and May 30, 2021. This will be the first sizable festival in Ojai since COVID started. Unlike last year’s virtual Art in the Park, 2021 brings us back to walking through downtown Ojai’s Libbey Park where artists will showcase their recent works and festival goers can enjoy a sense of normalcy.

The Art in the Park celebration attracts artists from all over the state and serves as a great opportunity for artists, locals, tourists and art lovers of all ages to meet, browse and buy.

Everyone is invited to browse, meet the artists, grab a bite and enjoy the weekend in Libbey Park. Free admission. We ask that face coverings are worn and social distancing practiced. Call 805-646-0117 for further information or visit www.ojaiartcenter.org. More artist photos, contact info and bios are available upon request.

June 12  (10 – 6) and Sunday, June 13 (10 – 5)Where: Libbey Park in Ojai.

Discover the hand-made ceramics of over 25 clay artists as they showcase their work at Libbey Park in Ojai June 13 (10-6) and June 14 (10-5). Everyone is excited to be safely back outdoors selling in downtown Ojai.

Enjoy seeing the pottery and demonstrations safely! Following COVID guidelines, masks and social distancing will be required. We want you to go home with a beautiful ceramic creation, not COVID. We are all anxious to get out and enjoy a beautiful weekend. We hope you can join us.
