The Salem Art Association (SAA) is the dedicated organization behind the Salem Art Fair & Festival which is both the non-profit organization’s largest fundraiser and the largest festival of its kind in Oregon. This year, 37,000 people attended the three day event.
The Salem Art Fair & Festival features 200 Visual Artists, plus live music, theatre and dance performances, two craft beer and wine gardens, more than 20 food booths, art activities for children and families, and a Plant Sale. Visual Artists from all over the nation are represented, although the majority hails from the Pacific Northwest. In 2016, 113 Oregon artists and 36 Washington artists showcased their work in the Artist Marketplace.
By attending the Salem Art Fair & Festival visitors help support SAA’s core programs: Community Arts Education, the Bush Barn Art Center and the Bush House Museum. Each year, through these programs, SAA brings arts education to schools in Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties, reaching thousands of children; supports local artists of all ages and experience levels through opportunities to showcase their work; connects the community to the arts through free-of-charge art exhibitions and events; and provides an ever-expanding experience of Salem’s heritage.
