An Annual Affair

31 Days of ARTober in Oakhurst

Immerse yourself in 31 days of ART during ARTober in Oakhurst. Located just a handful of miles from Yosemite National Parks southern entrance, Oakhurst, California is known as a region to have the highest number of artist per capita in the United States. We decided it deserved an entire month dedicated to the arts! Kick the month off with Sierra Art Trails open studio tour, later enjoy a day of chalk art, paint rocks at the Oakhurst Fall Festival or laugh and dance during a live performance and so much more!

Oakhurst, CA


Nestled among a forested mountain landscape, Oakhurst lies just south of Yosemite National Park. It is a gem in the Sierra Nevada not to be missed. Bursting at the seams with wonderful local shops, a home town craft brewery, several wine bars, a craft distillery and a wide array of wonderful restaurants, Oakhurst is a perfect place to slow down and enjoy life for a bit.
