The Seattle Art Fair returns August 1–4 for its fifth edition, and it promises to be even better than last year. “The programming at the Seattle Art Fair is eclectically topical,” Nato Thompson, the fair’s artistic director, said in a statement. “We were inspired by the Wunderkammers, cabinets of curiosity from the 16th century that displayed objects garnered and pilfered from across the seven seas. This program ideally takes the spirit of interdisciplinary, intersectionality, and the post-human as touchstones for a 21st-century version.” Stay at the sleek Thompson Seattle, designed by Olson Kundig, and check out architectural gems like the newly renovated Space Needle and the Frank Gehry–designed Museum of Pop Culture.

Summer is a great time to explore the California wine country, and art lovers can attend the 58th annual Art in the Redwoods Festival from August 15–18 to boot. Organized by Gualala Arts, the festival has been promoting the arts in Northern California since 1961. It overlaps with Sonoma County Cider Week (August 17–25), so you could also learn about the other alcoholic beverage produced in the county. Check into the rustic-chic Farmhouse Inn, which has a Michelin-star restaurant and a pampering spa.

This year, Germany is celebrating the centenary of the short-lived but influential Bauhaus school. Berlin will host Bauhaus Week, a festival that starts on August 31 and celebrates all things Bauhaus, with exhibitions, lectures, guided tours, films, and more. Though you won’t be able to visit the Bauhaus-Archiv, you should stay through the beginning of September to see the Original Bauhaus exhibition it’s organizing at the Berlinische Galerie. If you go, stay at Rocco Forte’s Hotel de Rome, which features modern design inside a 19th-century bank building with a pool inside the old vault, and book a table at Pauly Saal, a Michelin-star restaurant with an eye-catching design inside a former Jewish girls’ school in Mitte.
