Finster Fest will be held in Paradise Garden. Howard Finster created more than 40,000 numbered works of folk art in his lifetime. You’ll find work by self-taught artists that Finster directly inspired and by artists who never met the self-described “Man of Visions” but who are nonetheless inspired by his legacy.
The Paradise Garden Foundation is a nonprofit organisation that has been steadily restoring Finster’s spirit-moving roadside attraction since 2012, brings art, music and food back to this magical setting.
