Wild Arts Festival

As with all Portland Audubon programs and events this year, we will be taking the 2020 Wild Arts Festival virtual! Learn more by visiting the Wild Arts Festival website.

Join us from November 14 – 22 to celebrate the 40th year of the Festival, featuring art, authors, and an auction. This year’s free virtual event will highlight 50 artists, 20 authors, and a robust silent auction—all taking place online. Presented again by Backyard Bird Shop, expect this year’s festival to be filled with the same warmth and delight you’ve become accustomed to (only virtually)!

With paintings, photography, ceramics, jewelry, fiber arts, sculpture, nonfiction, children’s books, and so much more, you’ll find something (or many things) you love! Click to get a preview of our artists and authors! And make sure to stay tuned for details on live author readings.

RSVP for Our Virtual 40th Celebration

Join us on Saturday, November 14 at 5 p.m. to celebrate the 40th Wild Arts Festival! We’ll look back at our 40 year history of the Festival and you’ll have the opportunity to bid on unique art items in a “live auction”.

This pair of Swarovski EL 10×42 “Swarobright” binoculars, valued at $2,100, could be yours. We’ll be selling 400 tickets at $25 each on wildartsfestival.org so you have a very good chance to win these incredible optics! Raffle tickets will be available November 11-22 or until we sell out.

You’ll find 100 items including hiking and birding gear, retail gift certificates, foreign travel opportunities, weekend getaways, and beautiful art pieces. You can bid from 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 14 until 4 p.m. on Sunday, November 22—nine days!—but don’t wait, as items may go quickly with the “Buy It Now” option!
