Ready or not, here it comes. The Holidays. The wonderful, confusing, dreaded Holidays. You can’t escape it, so why not make the best of it by treating yourself to a fun, relaxing day while scratching off your shopping gift list.
Come on over to Art Under the Umbrellas at Old Town La Quinta on Saturday, December 1st between 10 am and 4 pm. Here you’ll find truly original, unique gifts in every media and every price range from over 80 talented artisans set-up along Old Town’s charming streets and lawn.
Or how about a gift certificate from Old Town Massage, Tuscan olive oils and flavorful balsamic vinegars at Old Town Olive Oil Company, or children’s clothing and toys from Gracie’s Emporium. And check out La Quinta Arts Foundation’s new line of whimsical note cards by La Quinta Arts Festival Featured Artist Stacy Dynan for only $5 a pack – the best hostess gift ever! It’s one stop shopping — plus no waiting in line. You’ll be home wrapping presents by the fire in no time.
Live entertainment by the Steve Madaio & Friends will energize your shopping excursion as you explore the artist booths and Old Town’s boutiques and shops adorned in classic holiday style.
Then take a lunch or dinner break at The Grill on Main, Hogs Breath La Quinta, Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill, Solano’s Bistro, or The Wine Bar at Old Town, where you can take home a bottle or two of holiday spirit to ring in the New Year.
Art Under the Umbrellas is presented by La Quinta Arts Foundation, now in its 31st season in service to its non-profit mission of “Promoting and Cultivating the Arts” through which over $1 million has been awarded in visual arts college scholarships.
