The middle weekend of July is Bayfield’s Annual Festival of the Arts & Gallery Tour. In 2017 this will be the 55th annual celebration (July 15 & 16). The arts and crafts portion of the event is held in the park along Bayfield’s waterfront and includes a variety of traditional artistic media (paintings, sculpture, photography, etc.) as well as unique craft items like pottery, jewelry, wood carvings, and more. In addition there is Gallery Tour where a number of local galleries and artisan studios host open houses, gallery exhibits, special sales and working demonstrations of their crafts.
