Airing of the Quilts Festival

The Airing of the Quilts Festival continues a long tradition of outdoor quilt displays in Gee’s Bend, AL, and allows visitors to explore this vibrant artistic community that has given rise to generations of African-American quiltmakers. Since 2021, this annual celebration of generations-old quiltmaking tradition, features quilt displays and sales, workshops, guided tours, food, music, and more. Known for their bold, improvisational designs and use of recycled fabrics, Gee’s Bend quilts are among the world's most celebrated works of art. Hailed by the New York Times as “some of the most miraculous works of modern art America has produced,” quilts from this tiny community are now in the permanent collections of over 30 leading art museums.
