Salida, Colorado is located in the heart of the South Central Colorado Rockies and has the distinction of being one of "America's best art towns", according to The 100 Best Art Towns in America, by author John Villani. White water rafting, 'Fourteener' mountain hiking, horseback riding and area hot springs, world class river fishing and the charm of a small mountain town with 15 art galleries, unique boutiques and restaurants make Salida a popular vacation spot.

The festival is in a picturesque willow tree filled park with lush green lawns on the banks of the Arkansas River, in the downtown Historic District. Colorful kayakers, rafters and fly fishermen can be seen from the festival site and enhance the mood of the festival. Families enjoy clean river beaches, a playground, volleyball and picnic tables.

The live Music Stage features the best of local blues and folk musicians. Our vision is to provide the local and visiting public and our national and local exhibitors a memorable and high quality festival experience.
