The Door County Plein Air Festival presented by Peninsula School of Art celebrates the tradition of outdoor painting with some of the finest painters from Door County and across the country. Over 35 artists will put brush to canvas, capturing the summer light over the waters and fields of Door County, Wisconsin.

Painting from life and the landscape has long been a Door County tradition, and one that has endured evolving styles. The festival’s painters bring a fresh eye to the changing lights and colors, and a variety of styles that draw from the rich traditions of plein air painting.

Listen and learn from daily artist demonstrations. Tour local partner galleries as artists paint on site. Relax with great music and food at our sunset concert* and paint out.  View presentations by the festival judge, award winning artists, and knowledgeable collectors. View fresh paintings at our Collector's Preview Gala Auction. *Children can try painting plein air during our Kid's Paint, Saturday, July 27. Be at the heart of festival excitement during the Quick Paint competition. Vote for your favorite artists at our Open Door Reception. Take home an original piece of fine art.
