Mediums include ceramics, wood, sculpture, painting, jewelry, photography and fiber. Surrounding the shows are more than 20 set-in-nature Art Installations commissioned just for the Festival.

From great live music to rovers and more, River Festival entertainment is worth the trip. Four stages groove Friday through Sunday from 11a.m. on.
