The Smoky Hill River Festival features a highly competitive, juried show that brings together exceptional exhibitors from coast to coast. The Fine Art and Craft Show is highly respected among artists, garnering multiple awards of recognition for more than 40 years. The show draws local and regional patrons who purchase more than $500,000 annually in original, handmade work.

In addition to the outstanding juried show, the Festival features eight selected artisans in an Art/Craft Demonstration Area and nearly 20 Art Installations nestled throughout the park. Visual art is an integral part of the Festival, as is the participation and engagement of Festival-goers in the creative process.
