If you are considering relocating to the Salem Oregon area, the Salem Art Fair is a really great festival that occurs in July every year. It’s held at Bush Park and artists from all over are invited. Artists have to submit their work and be accepted into the fair, so the quality is always stellar, hence my problem. Art ranges from clothing, to jewelry, to watercolors, to pottery, to…you name it.
For families, the kids section is a separate area where they can do some small craft projects, get their faces painted, and watch performances geared for children. Live music, food, and of course art are plentiful at the fair.
