The Mystic Outdoor Art Festival is the oldest of its kind in the Northeast, and draws lots of art enthusiasts from all over the country. The festival was set up in scenic downtown Mystic, the route went right by both our shops. We were lucky to have good weather especially on Sunday with a breeze from the water and cooler temperatures. As you walked through the festival you could view the river, the boats going by and the bridge going up and down.

 The festival featured over 200 artists from around the United States, with more than two miles of arts and crafts including oils, watercolors, photographs, pastels, sculpture, woodwork, comics, acrylics, and more. This was a free event and included activities and artwork for all ages to enjoy, including a Children's Art Park located in Mystic River Park across the Street from our 25 Cottrell St. location!
