If this is your first time visiting our fair city, you may be surprised at all the activities and events that take place here nearly every month of the year, and even those who visit frequently may be a tiny bit surprised at the scope and depth of one of our favorite weeks of the year. Annapolis Arts Week celebrates the talent and skills of artists from all over the world, but it’s the local ones we love the most, of course! Taking place the first week of June, every minute of the seven-day event is jam-packed with creativity and style. If you’re planning on being here June 1st thru 8th, it’s definitely worth it to experience Art Week yourself!
Annapolis Arts Week – Held in Various Locations Throughout Town
It’s the variety that draws you in and the imaginativeness that captures your attention, starting with Float on June 1st. Sponsored by Prism and Circle Creatives, this block party is the only place to be! On June 2nd, the First Sundays Arts Festival features an opportunity to explore, examine, and perhaps purchase whatever catches your eye—with the exception of the performance arts, of course!
The next part of the festival is actually one of our favorites and takes part over multiple days. Paint Annapolis brings in artists from all over the country to paint al fresco. Getting to watch the talent and style as they create beauty from paint, brushes, and canvases never fails to give us a thrill! Lasting from June 2nd through June 9, the fun is contagious, and their works will give you chills. June 5th brings Paint Annapolis Nocturne (night time painting). If you can only make one night, this is the one! On June 6th, Art on the Ave is another block party, but this one comes with awards and a juried exhibition of the works you have been watching them create all week!
Live music on June 2nd and June 7th and a live performance of Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble takes place on June 8th, and because you can be a part of the art as well, Free Yoga on the Labyrinth, June 1st, and the Writing Intensive at St. Johns College on June 8th are offered for your enjoyment and participation. If you love art and culture, this will definitely be one of your favorite Annapolis events!
