About the 2022 Festival

The “Salida Arts Fair” is one of the premier arts destinations in Colorado. Salida was rated #30 in John Villani’s book “The 100 best art towns in America”. After taking 2020 off from life, like everyone, we’re thrilled that our 7th annual Salida Arts Festival will be held in Riverside Park adjacent to the pedestrian mall in downtown Salida. We will be hosting new artists and many of our favorite returning artists with new work. Come join us, it’s going to be Great! Saturday, July 16th, 10-5 and Sunday, July 17th 10-4. See you there.

The Arts Fair is run by and for artists. Jerry Scavezze has done shows for over 30 years. He understands the needs of artists and the importance of a show’s location. The new Salida “pedestrian mall” has become wildly popular and the show is right on it. The show will be limited to 80 juried artists. Red Tischer will be playing music both days. Thanks Red!
