Arts are thriving in Yosemite/Mariposa County where a growing community of artists and galleries, museums, musicians, live performances and more contribute to a truly inspired environment. The Mariposa Symphony Orchestra features several performances throughout the year and the Yosemite Theater features live shows seven nights a week from May-October.
In downtown Mariposa and in Yosemite National Park, authentic art galleries feature work from local and regional artists in a variety of mediums. Browse through galleries and perhaps bring home a special Yosemite memento.
Create your own Yosemite art! One way to really stop and enjoy the park as a family is by engaging in a Yosemite Art Workshop. Taking place daily throughout the summer, Yosemite Art workshops are led by different artists every week and focus on a variety of subjects, from watercolor to silk painting! See the Yosemite Guide for complete schedule.
There are also very special traditional holiday events, such as the annual Bracebridge Dinner at the Majestic Yosemite Hotel, a must see event for more than eighty years!
