Welcome to Piqua, where the arts are ALIVE! With artisans from all over providing crafts and fine art for you to purchase, live entertainment, craft beer from local breweries, food and drinks from local vendors, and a plein air competition, this event is one of the "can't miss" attractions in the community. See how you can be a part of the 2022 Piqua Arts & Ale Festival below.
Tailspin Brewing Co. is located in a renovated dairy barn, and has fed generations of Ohioans since 1933. Today, they have preserved its unique character and made it a warm, inviting place to enjoy friends and great locally brewed craft beer.
Warped Wing Brewing Co. is a Dayton craft brewery inspired by Ohio’s rich history of innovation and invention. They are committed to carrying that spirit forward by brewing new proprietary beer styles along with original “warped” interpretations.
Moeller Brew Barn was built on their passion for brewing quality craft beer for local communities, and because they believe everyone should have a choice to enjoy fresh, local, craft beer.
Paint out will start at 8:00am. Participants should meet at 311 Drafthouse (311 N. Main St.) in Downtown Piqua and have their canvas(es) stamped. They will then need to be back by 4:30pm for judging. They may submit one piece for judging, and if room allows, other paintings will be displayed. The presented painting must be wired for hanging. Artwork may be photographed & used in promotion by the Piqua Arts Council or their partners.
The competition is FREE, and there are no age or location boundaries, though we encourage participants to stay in/around the Piqua Area. A total of $2000 in prizes will be awarded after judging takes place.
