Each fall, A Studio in the Woods hosts FORESTival: A Celebration of Art and Nature. FORESTival is the one day out of the year that our woods are open to the public at large.

This family-friendly day of celebration features live music, artist presentations by current and former residents, special guest artists, guided walks in the woods with scientists, and a silent auction. There are hands-on art activities for kids of all ages and local food and drink are available for purchase. Buy tickets for FORESTival 2023 on November 11th here. Volunteer opportunity is available here and sponsor opportunities are here.

FORESTival is the only time during the year that A Studio in the Woods is open to the public at large and this signature celebration of art and nature is fun for the whole family. A Studio in the Woods is located in Lower Algiers at 13401 Patterson Rd. New Orleans LA, 70131, about a 25 minute drive from downtown New Orleans.
