Martinez Art in the Park

47th Annual Art in the Park 

The Martinez Arts Association (MAA) presents the 47th Annual Art in the Park on Sunday, August 21, at Susana Park in Martinez, from 10am-5pm. Over 50 artists are expected at this free event. Come and enjoy fine arts and crafts created by local artists, along with music, food and beverages including wine and beer.  

The music line-up includes Thomas Martin, Acoustic Killbillies, New Frantics, and Caroompas Room. For the final line-up and performance times, check the Martinez Arts website or Facebook page closer to the event.

Art in the Park is the MAA’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Don’t miss this year’s silent auction that raises money to support the arts in local schools. Last year’s Flamingos were a bit hit. This year the theme is Recycled Yard Art, featuring unique, whimsical items created and donated by participating artists.

There is plenty of free parking in downtown Martinez with a golf cart shuttle from the Farmers’ Market area at the Starbucks plaza. Meters don’t operate on Sundays.

Founded in 1968 as a nonprofit organization, the MAA organizes and participates in many community events throughout the year. Our goal is to encourage art culture and education for local youth. Fundraising proceeds provide scholarships to graduating seniors as well as art grants for elementary through high school teachers. The Martinez Gallery is also a branch of the MAA, and 15% of gallery sales will be donated to the art grant program.
