The Voice of Art is thrilled to extend its first outdoor juried fine art show, “Litchfield Art Festival,” to its Part II & III” in Goshen that will be a highlight for collectors and residents from the Tri-State region, New England and beyond.  The Litchfield Hills has a history and reputation for featuring top fine artists from across the country, and also many well-known and beloved New England and CT artists widely admired by art enthusiasts.  Attracting thousands of visitors, the festival will provide an exciting platform for artists to engage with attendees and sell their work.

With DOUBLED visibility and accessibility, TVOA is committed to offering its best promotional efforts to present featuring artists’ high-quality work for maximum results.  To responsibly meet this time of challenge, TVOA will organize this live art event in a hybrid venue – both in-person and virtual through multiple digital channels – to reach a broader audience and ensure the public health and safety.  TVOA will encourage optimal participation by delivering interactive, digital excursions for viewers. 

The Litchfield Hills

 

The Town of Litchfield in the rolling hills of Northwestern Connecticut is a truly an historical town. Recently celebrating its tri-centennial, it is where George Washington met with Colonel Tallmadge during the Revolutionary War.  History is treasured here, as evidenced by the meticulously restored homes and the classic village greens.  Its shops and restaurants, set around the historic green and immediate area, contribute to the 18th century New England town atmosphere.  But at the same time, proximity to Manhattan keeps this corner of Connecticut contemporary.  The Litchfield Hills are a popular escape for city folk, who in turn have helped raise the bar for restaurants and accommodations in the area — turning what has long been a destination for antiquers into a haven for foodies, as well.  Its shops and restaurants, set around the historic green and immediate area, contribute to the 18th century New England town atmosphere.  And, of course, the beautiful rural setting that includes Bantam Lake and the White Memorial Conservation, offers many outdoor activities.  The Town of Goshen in Litchfield County is a scenic country town, nestled in the beautiful rolling green hills of Northwestern Connecticut. This quaint New England town is home to farms, churches, theaters, restaurants, farmers markets, chocolatiers, dairies, vineyards, orchards, B&Bs and much more.  The beautiful rural setting offers the perfect place to spend a day, weekend, or to settle down for much longer with many outdoor activities including swimming, hiking and skiing.    

Part I: The Litchfield Inn, centrally located in Litchfield, right off the main road (Rt. 202) with high visibility, offers easy access to the Festival site, along with beautiful views and a sense of historic and classic New England charm.

Part II: Goshen Fairgrounds, well known for Goshen Fair and many other festivals by the surrounding communities, will attract thousands of audiences and offer easy access to the Festival site, right off the main road (Rt. 63) with high visibility.  In addition to its beautiful views overlooking Mohawk Mountain and a sense of historic and classic New England charm, it provides a spacious, open field that will allow exhibitor tents to be spaced at a safe distance and control the flow of the crowd to relieve congestion as well as participants’ on-site parking. 

Part III: Miranda Vineyard is located near beautiful Woodridge Lake in the scenic town of Goshen in Litchfield Hills, off the main road, route 63. This picturesque vineyard with its award-winning handcrafted vintage wines will draw thousands of its devoted customers to this outdoor fine art event.
