2013 Wellfleet Blossoms Weekend - April 12th-14th

Wellfleet is blossoming again on the weekend of April 12-14 as the second annual Wellfleet Blossoms Festival looks to be bigger and better than ever! Nearly 100 Outer Cape artists ranging in age from 9 to 95 will be exhibiting their work in the centerpiece Emerging Artists exhibition at Preservation Hall and a companion art show, "All About Wellfleet", celebrating Wellfleet's past and present at the Public Library.

The theme of this three day festival is "Celebrating Our Emerging Artists" and is a great way to kick-off the season. It starts with a party at the Lighthouse Restaurant on Friday, starting at 4:30 p.m. featuring live music and complementary appetizers.

The must-do event of the weekend is a fantastic art show at Preservation Hall including everything from oil painting to sculpture to jewelry, all created by local artists. Kevin Howard, Executive Director of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, will be the honored guest to welcome and celebrate the emerging artists at our gala reception at Preservation Hall on Saturday, April 13 beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Preservation Hall and other local venues will also be humming all weekend long with a variety of workshops involving the arts. Unique to this festival will be a free workshop on “How to become a non-starving artist” with advice and practical guidance from practitioners, small business advisers and potential financial supporters.
