If you are an artist interested in our 2017 show, please go to: call-to-artists
The 2017 Saratoga Rotary Art Show marks it’s 60th anniversary May 6 and 7 back on the lawn at West Valley College! Our artists and community patrons will be thrilled to be back on the lawn to enjoy exquisite art from 150 artists, strawberry shortcake and smoothies, along with wine, beer and food trucks. Local entertainment, Kids Corner and Donkey Rides add to the fun.
Produced since 1957 by members of the Saratoga Rotary Club, the Saratoga Rotary Art Show raises funds for local and international charities under the guidelines of the Saratoga Rotary Charitable Foundation. To date, the Saratoga Rotary Foundation has granted over $2.5 million to local and international nonprofits serving the needs of our communities and those worldwide. Go to: www.saratogarotarycharitable foundation.org for a list of our recipients.
The Saratoga Art show is produced with 99% support from our club members, family members and friends. We raise the support funds, market the event, serve wine, beer and strawberries, organize the entertainment, welcome the artists with food and beverage, and encourage the community to come and buy! It’s a great day for the club and a great service to our community.
– Bill Comport, 2017 Art Show Chairperson
