Our 2022 theme is BLOOM, highlighting our flourishing desert wildflowers – and desert talent!

We are proud to present an exciting program of local and visiting artists that embraces the diversity of creativity here in our desert home. Come and be part of our eleven day celebration of arts and culture in bloom.
