Planned and executed by the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce, the two-day Mystic Outdoor Art Festival is the oldest of its kind in the Northeast region. As a juried art show, the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival serves a national audience of discriminating art enthusiasts, as well as weekend visitors and residents from surrounding communities including Groton, New London, Waterford, and southern Rhode Island.
The festival showcases over 230 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. The Mystic Outdoor Art Festival, lovingly known as “MOAF”, is a FREE event and features activities and artwork for all ages to enjoy, including a Children’s Art Park located in Mystic River Park.
