    10th Annual Studio Tour - Weekend after Thanksgiving:

    November 24 & 25, 2017 full tour and select studios also open on Sunday November 26.

    Hours: 10 - 4 daily

    This year we have 12 venues and 15 participating artists.

    Thanksgiving weekend offers you a special opportunity to tour the backroads and byways of the Long Beach Peninsula. Many of the colorful local artists will open their personal studios tucked away in the forests between Willapa Bay and the Pacific Ocean. You’ll see glass art, pottery, paintings, photography, monoprints, jewelry, fabric art, metal sculpture, wood carving, repurposed art, demonstrations, and more.

    If your desire is to shop small this season, or to surprise someone special (or yourself!) with a unique gift and have an adventure while you shop… this is the place to be Friday and Saturday the 24th and 25th of November from 10-4. The studio tour is a brilliant way to enjoy time with family, friends and holiday visitors.

    Maps are available online here (see below link), the Peninsula Arts Association Face book page, the Long Beach Visitors Bureau, M&D Design and The Picture Attic in Long Beach, Bay Avenue Gallery in Ocean Park, and the Ocean Park Area Chamber office.
