A Celebration of all things ESO!
Produced by ESO Staff, Board of Directors & a committed group of Eastern Shore residents, artists, and advocates for the Arts.
ESO Fest is ESO Arts Center’s largest fundraiser of the year! With fun for all ages, ESO Fest welcomes over 300 patrons a year. Highlighting the ESO community, opportunities, and classes. Each year our guests and sponsors enjoy local food, regional craft beer and wine, and the talents of musicians and artists from the Delmarva area. This year guests can also enjoy pottery demos and or a small fee can enjoy throwing a piece of their own! The festival will be hosted on the grounds of our 100-year-old school building on King Street in Belle Haven VA, which ESO proudly owns.
For over 35 years, ESO has been committed to supporting local artists and residents to teach, practice and perform their talents and crafts. Annually, more than 300 students of all ages attend classes, camps and workshops hosted by professional artists and ESO. Our pledge to foster the arts is deeply rooted in the artistic community we serve on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
All proceeds from ESO Fest support ESO’s operating fund; allowing ESO to continue our mission of fostering the development of the arts on the Eastern Shore and continue to make much needed updates to our 100-year-old school building.
