Loma Linda Fine Arts Festival

Loma Linda Fine Arts Festival

Loma Linda University Health’s 51st Fine Arts Festival (FAF) features a series of visual, written, and musical events from April 22 to June 3. Each presentation is intended to illustrate that an important part of “making man whole” is promoting the creative side of humankind, and feature the talents of LLUH students, faculty, staff, and community.

Festival organizers believe the breadth and depth of talent in the Loma Linda area is remarkable and deserves community support. This year’s events include visual, musical, and written arts, all presented in important ways that share the God-given creativity so many are blessed to possess.
