Litchfield Park’s signature annual event, the 9th annual Wigwam Fine Art and Wine Festival, is returning to the Wigwam Resort, 300 E. Wigwam Blvd., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., from Friday, Feb. 16 through Sunday, Feb. 18.

This event will showcase more than 100 juried fine artists. Art exhibitors will transform the front lawn of the Wigwam into an outdoor gallery with paintings, bronzes, glass sculptures, metal sculptures, mixed media sculptures, hand thrown clay, Raku pottery, unique and one of a kind jewelry, photography, and custom furnishings and fountains.

Featured artists include Elizabeth Dunlap and her contemporary glass sculptures, painter Terry Meyers and the bronze sculptures of Paul Yates.

Attendees are invited to partake in alfresco dining from the Wigwam’s chefs, chocolate fountains and confectionaries topped off with a selection of fine domestic and imported wines, craft beer, and the resort’s signature cocktails. This year’s entertainment lineup includes the Ecuadoran folk group Inka Gold, who became an Internet sensation last year when their video received more than 47 million views on YouTube. Internationally acclaimed fiddler Arvel Bird is also on the bill, along with bluesman Mike Anderson and the Blues Review Band. There’ll be a colorful and original interpretation of Native American music, storytellers and dancers, including hoop dancer Tony Duncan.

Admission is free. For information, call 623-734-6526 or visit VermillionPromotions.com.

The Wigwam Resort opened in 1929, when guests received a horse along with their hotel key, and has been designated as an Historic Hotel of America.
