Over 165 plein air artists roam our charming city capturing favorite historical structures, coffee shops and the picturesque countryside. Artists from all over work with oils, watercolors, pastels and more. Paint Cedarburg is nationally recognized as the largest gathering of artists in Wisconsin. Artists leave the comforts of their studios and spend 7 days painting outside…rain or shine. The public is encouraged to interact with the artists as they paint or simply marvel at their creativity.

What people are saying about Paint Cedarburg…
“What helps set Cedarburg apart from other events is the scale of it all. From the number of artists to the volunteers and the buyers, when this show comes together at the end of the week it is a true spectacle. The beauty of such a large event lies in its coordination and dedication to the fine arts.”
