The festival is a juried Art Exhibit and En Plein Air (Outdoor) Painters event and sale. Also included are live music, art demonstrations, children’s crafts and guided tours of the gracious Harding House on this bucolic estate, preserved as a Holmdel, New Jersey park. Expanding on the success of our tri-state area plein air event, the festival has broadened its reach to artists nationally to participate and offer introduction to the beautiful destination setting of Bayonet Farm.
