During the month of March, when folks from around the world are flocking to Anza Borrego desert to view gorgeous desert wildflowers, many may not realize until they drive through Borrego Springs that an art show is going on. The Circle of Art festival features about 60 artists from the area and you can find paintings, jewelry, glass art, ceramics and sculpture.
Tip: Borrego Springs is a great place in the fall and winter months for hiking. Summer and late spring, not so much, it does get hot here. The wildflower viewing is world class, so keep abreast of the best time to come by visiting this website- http://www.desertusa.com/wildflo/ca_abdsp.html The Circle of Art usually occurs during peak wildflower blooming, so is a nice stop after walking about in the desert all day.
