Apple Blossom Festival Art Show

AWS Apple Blossom Show

2021 Apple Blossom Show

Cancelled :-(

Our major yearly event, the AWS Apple Blossom Art Show, takes place at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts in April, in conjunction with the town's weekend-long Apple Blossom Fair at Ives Park.  


It is a fun event that allows our art to be seen by hundreds of people. Approximately 50 AWS artists show, and hopefully sell, to the public at this annual event. A Friday night reception is hugely attended.

To participate in the show, AWS members must meet requirements for AWS monthly meeting attendance, sharing their art, and bringing food for our potlucks. Additionally, all contribute volunteer hours in order to pull off this big event together.
