Organizers of the San Diego Festival of the Arts (www.sdfestivalarts.org) have announced the annual show, originally scheduled for June 13-14 and postponed after government-mandated shutdowns, will not happen in 2020 and instead will resume in 2021.
"Obviously our entire organization is disappointed to not be able to hold the 2020 Festival of the Arts, but given the current public health emergency and overall uncertainty regarding public events for the foreseeable future, we felt the wise decision was to officially cancel this year's event and focus our energy on a successful 2021 festival," said event chair Don Ludwig.
Approaching its 35th year, this prestigious juried festival showcases stunning works of painting, sculpture, photography, glass, jewelry, ceramics, wood, fiber and mixed media from nearly 200 world-renowned artists. Ticket sales (starting at $12), a silent auction and wine and beer garden all benefit 20+ adaptive sports programs supporting more than 150,000 San Diegans with disabilities. Led by the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Foundation, the San Diego Festival of the Arts has raised more than $2.6 million for this cause since 1987.
2021 Event updates, dates and details will be posted as they become available on the San Diego Festival of the Arts web site at www.sdfestivalofthearts.org and via Twitter on @SDFestivalArts.
