Upcoming Events

Although Idyllwild Art in the Park events only take place during the summer, our artists and musicians are actively pursuing their art all year long.  Many have their work in galleries, online or participate in other events or show venues.  It is our goal to inform you of as many of these events as possible so we have added a column to the lower right of this page.  It will have many of the up-coming events listed by date.  We will also post events on our Instagram and FaceBook pages.  And of course, you can learn about our events and our community at  Plus, from time-to-time we will blog about specific “happenings,” like now…

December 8th, IAP members Scott and Kim Finnell will be hosting a “Studio/Gallery Tour” at their home in Idyllwild.  Open to the public, it will feature Scott’s glass artwork as well as a tour of a working glass studio. Joining Scott will be seven other local IAP artists: Sandi Austin (hand-painted wine glasses and mosaic art); Jerry Baccaire (“dotilism” painting); Lisa Coffaro (glass jewelry, suncatchers, etc.); Donna Elliot (mixed media, digital art, etc.); Neil Jenkins (paintings and drawings); Julie Roy (fibers) and Art Tobias (ceramics).  We are hoping that this will become an annual event, featuring more artists and their studios.

We are also pleased to share an Art Alliance of Idyllwild special event on Thursday, December 6th.  A local organization made-up of artists and those that love art,AAI promotes art in our community while raising money for school art programs and other critical needs.  The Call of the Wyld evening will begin with live music and jam session. There will be a delicious buffet and the “Call of the Wyld 2018” CD will be on sale.  For more information, cost and reservations:

For a small community, Idyllwild offers an amazingly wide range of activities and performances.  Follow us by email (upper right hand corner) to stay informed of what Idyllwild has to offer.

Welcome to our Idyllwild Art in the Park Blog!

Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to our new Idyllwild Art in the Park blog! 

We are so proud and thankful for our community and the artists that participate in Idyllwild Art in the Park that we want to share it with you year round!

IAP will not return to Hwy. 243 until May 2019.  In the meantime, we are always creating and changing. This blog will introduce you to new artists, new creations from our regulars, new opportunities to see our artists during the off-season and life (both old and new) in Idyllwild.  Biographies will also be posted to introduce you to the talented individuals who make IAP so special along with links to their websites, etc.

For this our first of many blogs, we would like to introduce you, through photos, to our amazingly beautiful community.  Enjoy the pictures but note… Idyllwild is even more spectacular in person!

We hope you’ll follow us on a regular basis and learn more about our events, artists and the beautiful mountain mecca we call home.  

Again, Happy Thanksgiving and if you can't wait until our next blog, please like us on Facebook, Instagram and check out our website  –K


Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a flower; But only for an hour. Nature is where Idyllwild...
