From 25th annual Artsfest Website:

Established in 1993, Artsfest is an annual juried arts festival held at Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center located in Solomons, Maryland - about an hour from the Baltimore-Washington metro area. Recognized as one of the top outdoor arts festivals in the Mid-Atlantic region, Artsfest brings together some of the country's most accomplished artists for a weekend of terrific shopping, great music, and delicious food and drinks. Artsfest also features more than 25 bands and entertainment acts performing on two stages, as well as family activities and programs under the Discovery Tent and in the Zany Zone. The beauty of Annmarie Garden is the perfect backdrop for this annual celebration of the arts! We hope you will make Artsfest a must-do on your list of shows!

25th ANNIVERSARY of Artsfest!
Annmarie Garden was named for Ann Marie Koenig, wife of Francis Koenig, who donated the property to the citizens of Calvert County. Although Ann Marie and Francis are no longer living, we are honored to hold Artsfest every year on Ann Marie's birthday! In 2018, we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Artsfest and Ann Marie's 112th birthday! As a tribute to our patroness, we will honor one of the original goals of Artsfest to share the creative process with visitors. Artsfest artists will be encouraged (but not required) to demonstrate during Artsfest. For all those who are able, please consider what part of your creative process you can demonstrate during the festival. Happy Birthday Ann Marie and Happy Anniversary Artsfest 25 years celebrating artists and the arts!
