The 11th annual Ketchum Arts Festival will take place July 9-11 at Festival Meadows on Sun Valley Road next to Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church, in Sun Valley. The festival was started in 1999 by a group of six Wood River Valley artists who lacked a venue to sell their creations. The festival is run by a board and steering committee composed entirely of local artists and will feature 100 booths. In addition, food and drinks will be available from local restaurants and breweries.
The festival is still accepting applications from Blaine County artists and craft-makers. The deadline is April 30. For details, call 725-4090 or e-mail email@example.com, or visit ketchumartsfestival.org.
