Join the Sun Valley Center for the Arts as they present the 49th Annual Arts and Crafts Festival. This Festival is an outdoor juried fine arts and crafts show located in beautiful Ketchum, ID. The Sun Valley Center for the Arts values and honors the work made by the individual artists. No commercial agents are allowed. This popular community event also includes artist demonstrations, live music, food vendors and a children's activity area.
The Ketchum/Sun Valley area is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and is also brimming with culture and nightlife. In 2013 the City of Ketchum was ranked #3 among America’s Top 12 Small-Town ArtPlaces. It is home to a well-educated, sophisticated population who has chosen to make this mountain resort town home. Each summer Ketchum’s population swells to accommodate a large number of second home owners who come for the season as well as summer tourists who come for a week or weekend.
The Festival takes place at Atkinson Park, which is in the community core and a few blocks from downtown Ketchum. This grassy park is a hub for both tourists and locals alike.

The Sun Valley Center for the Arts uses the Zapplication System for processing all applications. To apply to our show please visit www.sunvalleycenter.org or www.zapplication.org. Artists may apply in multiple categories. For more information on this process please visit www.zapplication.org.
The jury is asked to evaluate applications by following these general guidelines:
The jury consists of a panel of 6 professional artists and collectors. The majority of the panel rotates on a yearly basis to ensure objectivity and a fresh festival annually. The same jurors who judge the festival applicants are also asked to judge Best of Show and Best of Category Awards during the Festival. Jurors are not compensated for their time, financially or otherwise.
LOCAL ARTISTS: All local artists, those living in Blaine County (as full time residents), will automatically receive one point before jurying to encourage participation and ensure a positive environment for local artists.
JURY EXEMPTIONS: The Best of Show and Best of Category winners from the previous year are exempt from the jury process. The Best of Show winner may participate as a jury member for the following year. The Festival Director has final discretion on accepted artists.
Artists may choose only one category per application. However artists are welcome to apply in multiple categories. While a balanced show that showcases fine art and diversity of media is a principal objective, the Sun Valley Center Arts & Crafts Festival does not establish a quota in any category. Please review category definitions carefully.
