Preview Parties

The Boston Mills Artfest 2020 show has been canceled.

Boston Mills has been a proponent of the arts for 48 consecutive years.  The country-wide renowned Artfest has cemented its place as a top art show due to Boston Mills' dedication to the show, its 300+ artists from 40+ states, local musicians, local foods, and its patrons.

COVID-19 has brought unique and unprecedented challenges to our everyday lives and its impacts are felt world-wide.  We, as a business, feel an obligation to our artists, show patrons, and staff members to have their best health and safety interests in mind at all times.  Following CDC guidelines and the advice from the Ohio State Health and Safety Board, we feel it is important to cancel the 2020 Artfest for the well-being of everyone involved. 

Boston Mills stands committed to being an active player in the art community and we plan to resume the show in 2021.  We appreciate your understanding during these challenging times and hope that everyone is safe and healthy.

Show I:  N/A

Show II:  N/A

A special Preview Party is held on the evening before both Artfests.  The Preview Party is your first chance to view and buy the works on display. And remember that each Artfest has entirely different artists and music so be sure to join us for both events.  Each Preview Party features a selection of food paired with fine wines and Sierra Nevada craft beers that patrons may enjoy while perusing and purchasing art.  The live music transforms Artfest's Preview Parties into the perfect summer evenings.  Your Preview Party Ticket purchase includes beverages, food, and live music. 

Tickets for the Preview Parties are $54 with an advance reservation and $64 once the advance reservation date passes.  Be sure to buy your tickets early as these shows have been known to sell out. Advance reservations must be made by midnight on 6/27 for the Show 1 Preview Party, and by midnight on 7/4 for the Show 2 Preview Party.

Preview Parties are limited to guests age 21 & over.

Preview Parties are held rain or shine, and all ticket reservations and sales for these events are final.
