“We are thrilled to continue the tradition of a world-class art event in La Quinta,” said Paul Anderson, CEO of SCOPE Events, LLC. “We’re adding experiences that will enhance this amazing art celebration and we look forward to bringing together the community and over 220 artists to celebrate the creative spirit.”

La Quinta Art Festival 2020 - La Quinta Art Celebration

When suddenly faced with the prospect of not being the host city to its namesake arts festival, the City of La Quinta quickly rallied to recruit a new promoter for a major art event in March 2020. Through a comprehensive selection process, the City Council unanimously approved the selection of Paul Anderson/SCOPE Events, LLC, recognizing his prior proven success in the Bay Area arts festival scene.

SCOPE Events, LLC now combines the talents of CEO Anderson, former managing director of Sausalito Art Festival, and Kathleen (Kat) Hughes, who served as event manager of the highly esteemed La Quinta Arts Festival for 16 years. Their past experience will set a new standard for quality, variety and innovation.

La Quinta Art Celebration is primed to become the next number one show on the Coachella Valley and Southern California art scenes, taking on a fresh new look and fun vibe offering its patrons two Champagne Bars to toast the new event, a Gourmet Food Court, Winery Row featuring favorites from Napa, Sonoma and San Luis Obispo counties, a Margarita Bar lakeside on the island and our local Brandini Toffee decadently dipped ice cream bars. For entertainment, patrons will experience a digital art installation, and live music performances will provide the perfect background ambiance.
