The annual festival returns with a two-day outdoor exhibit exclusively at George Rogers Park (directions). Explore the works of over 100 professional fine artists and craftspeople while the park fills with music and life. Step into stall B1 and meet featured artist Francisco Bautista, a fourth-generation master weaver who works with the highest quality hand-spun, hand-dyed wool and weaves each piece on a foot pedal loom! Then sign up for our on-site MAPP drawing for a chance to win a wonderful prize basket! We made it through the last year together and now it's a beautiful Oregon summer. There's never been a better time to get outside. No food or drink will be sold onsite this year, so please bring your own water bottle.
Artists will be spread out to accommodate social distancing. Join us in supporting makers working in long-standing traditions, artists on the cutting edge, and newly emerging artists all coming together. Please leave your pets at home. Service dogs are welcome

Win Wonderful Prizes in the MAPP Drawing!
Each year, local businesses show their support for the Festival by donating items from their shops. This year, Pacific West Bank decided that COVID-19 stressed our local shops enough, so they purchased items from these businesses themselves to show support! Two MAPP baskets will be available at this year’s festival, containing fine wine, snacks, home goods, and gift cards to local favorites! Anyone who attends the Festival can join our MAPP drawing—simply fill out a MAPP slip once you enter the Festival and turn it into the drawing box.
Due to COVID-19, no shuttles will be provided this year. Festival parking is extremely limited and we recommend taking Lyft, Uber, or a taxi. In addition to public parking around George Rogers Park, we recommend these parking venues:
