The Sun Valley Arts & Crafts Festival is an outdoor, juried fine arts and crafts show located in historic Ketchum, Idaho. We value and honor art work made by the individual artists. No commercial agents are allowed. This popular community event also includes a kids' activity area, food vendors, and a picnic area with music.
The Ketchum/Sun Valley area is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, and is brimming with culture and nightlife. Go fly fishing on the world-famous Silver Creek, the Big Wood River, or the Big Lost River, learn about the latest art exhibitions at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, hike in the Sawtooth Mountains, water ski on Redfish or Alturas Lakes, bike on 400 miles of the best single-tracks in the U.S., attend an outdoor concert and of course visit the Sun Valley Arts & Crafts Festival.
In 2013 the City of Ketchum was ranked #3 in America’s Top 12 Small-Town ArtPlaces. It is home to a well-educated, sophisticated community who has chosen to live in this mountain resort town. Each summer Ketchum’s population swells to accommodate a large number of summer tourists escaping the heat and bustle of the cities, and second home owners who come for the season.
The Festival takes place at Atkinson Park, which is in the community core and a few blocks from downtown Ketchum. This grassy park adjoining Hemingway Elementary School is a hub for both tourists and locals alike.
