About the Festival
The Castine Arts Association plans to hold its fifth Castine Plein Air Festival on July 20-22, 2017. Detailed information for artists, including enrollment instructions, are contained in the Artist's Prospectus pdf file to the right. As in past events, the enrollment period will end on April 30th. Our jurors will evaluate all submissions, and select forty artists to participate in the festival. Good luck to all applicants!
The visitor to Castine will find first class lodging in three fine coastal inns. And there are a number of additional housing options in the town as well. We are very proud of our local shops and galleries which offer the best of Maine art and gifts. Recreation and entertainment opportunities are many, including visiting museums offering exhibits focused on historical significance to Castine, the peninsula, and elsewhere. And when a busy day builds an appetite, one can always find the right establishment to satisfy the palate.
