New in 2021!


We are pleased to announce a promotional partnership with the Sun Valley Music Festival in 2021. We invite all Festival patrons, artists and guests to attend the Music Festival each night of the Arts & Crafts Festival.


Live classical music returns—safely—to the Sun Valley Pavilion this year! And with it, your all-star orchestra once again takes the stage alongside renowned guest artists for over three weeks of memorable, admission-free performances. Visit for details.

We are seeking volunteers to help with the 2022 Festival. We need booth sitters to help give breaks to our talented and amazing artists throughout the day. We have 3-hour shifts each day. Sign ups will be available this spring. You may also email us at We'd love to have you involved!

Please note that no dogs or pets are allowed at the Festival. We love our dogs too, but they can severely damage the artwork on display at the Festival. There is also no smoking or vaping allowed at the Festival. Thank you for your cooperation.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why did the Sun Valley Museum of Art decide to stop presenting the Festival after 2018?

In 2019, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts rebranded their organization as the Sun Valley Museum of Art. Before that though, they refocused their mission to be on arts education, thus allocating strategic resources toward that goal. As such, they decided to make a shift after the 2018 Festival, but still wanted it to continue in the same fashion. The Museum of Art and Altitude Events Group reached an agreement to turn over management of the event moving forward.  For more information, please visit the SVMOA website or call the SVMOA at 208-726-9491. 


2. What is Altitude Events Group?

Art Daves is the owner of Altitude Events Group, LLC and started managing the event in 2019. Art has spent the past 27 years working exclusively in event and sports management. He has helped produce a large variety of events ranging from large scale multi-sport projects including the Summer Olympics and Ted Turner's Goodwill Games, to professional cycling stage races to made-for-TV events, to national marketing programs and charitable fundraising events. In early 2015, Art started his own event production consultancy in nearby Hailey, ID called Altitude Events Group, where he first contracted with the Sun Valley Center for the Arts to help produce the annual Wine Auction and Arts & Crafts Festival. The intent of Altitude Events Group is to provide the same high-quality Festival in much the same fashion as the SVCA, while staying true to the Festival's traditions and artistic integrity. 

​3. Will the schedule be the same going forward?

The Festival will continue to take place during the second weekend in August over three days, Friday through Sunday. 

4. Will new management mean different art and artists?

Artists will apply to the Festival using the same process the SVCA used since 2006, which is through Zapplication. Altitude Events Group understands that the quality and diversity of The Festival is one of its core strengths.  To continue that tradition, the rigorous jury process has continued with the change, with local artists gathering each spring to select from the hundreds of artists who apply to the show each year. The quality and standards of the show have not been compromised, as the Festival continues to produce the usual mix of new artists and familiar faces from around the country.
