Art Under the Umbrellas shows are one-day events located in Old Town La Quinta from 10am to 4pm on designated Saturdays. The season opening will be October 27, 2012.
These events attract Coachella Valley residents, our annual population of snowbirds from across the country and Canada, and hotel guests from coastal communities. La Quinta Art Foundation has developed a loyal following of discerning customers who enjoy strolling through this charming event. Live entertainment compliments the day.
Art Under the Umbrellas embraces a combination of Artist newcomers, along with veterans of La Quinta Arts Festival. We are fortunate to have the support of local Artists, and those coming from all over Southern California.
Art Under the Umbrellas has become very popular with art patrons and local hotel concierges seeking quality activities to recommend to their guests. Hotel clientele at La Quinta Resort, Embassy Suites, Santa Rosa Condos, as well as neighboring properties in Indian Wells and Palm Desert, flock to the desert to celebrate the long holiday weekends. Traditionally these are the busiest weekends in the Coachella Valley.
Over 70 artists participate at each La Quinta-Art Under the Umbrellas event, located along the closed-off streets of this charming outdoor venue reminiscent of colonial Mexico. This makes for an enjoyable day outdoors perusing artist wares, exploring Old Town La Quinta shops, and dining in Old Town restaurants. Art patrons will find quality artwork, while tourists will discover treasured mementos.
