Our self-guided driving tour takes you to the home-based, pop-up and group studios of over 35 participating artists. The weekend event runs for three days: October 18, 19, and 20 rain or shine, from 10:00am to 5:00pm each day. Admission is free and parking is available at all venues. Remember that some artists, as noted alongside their information, will only be open two days.
START AT THE TOUR HEADQUARTERS
Tour Headquarters, tour stop 21, is located in the Old Forrestville Schoolhouse at 9812 Georgetown Pike in Great Falls. Dorry Emmer will greet you inside the Schoolhouse. She knows all the artists, will offer suggestions to plan your tour, share anecdotes, and can direct you to studios ideal for families. She can guide you to hands-on activities and artists that interest you at other stops on the tour map.
