Julian offers something around every corner to inspire the senses, making it an ideal sanctuary for artists     and musicians.

Talented artists from around the world gather in Julian to share their paintings, sculptures, jewelry and crafts at exhibitions, workshops, events and studios throughout the year. A handmade work of art from the region’s talented artisans serves as a memento, a reminder to come back and visit again and again.

Music entices listeners to relax — or, if it takes your fancy, dance and cut loose — in historic venues and picturesque, open-air locales.

Creativity doesn’t stop in Julian — it’s part of the culture, inviting everyone to take part in the festivities.
