Known as “America’s most beautiful art festival” the Marin Art Festival is home to art, music, food and fun. As you stroll through the pavilions where you can browse and buy unique art for yourself or as a gift, you will find yourself mingling with strolling musicians and stilt walkers. Enjoy music and dance from a variety of styles including hula, breakdance, traditional, hip hop, multicultural, dramatic, belly dancing and burlesque. Unlike many art festivals, the Marin Art Festival offers sit down dining where you will be waited on by student waiters decked out in black tie. It is an experience for all the senses.
