Apply to Exhibit

We are using two registration systems to manage the application and jury process for the festival. We continue to use ZAPPlication.org for the Artisan Booth Show. To simplify the application for the Fine Art Gallery, we have added a sister site, Café, at callforentry.org, which is more geared to gallery exhibitions and easier to navigate for non-booth artists. It also helps with tagging and labeling in the gallery. If you wish to exhibit in both venues, please manage your booth registration through Zapplication and then go to Café for the Fine Art Gallery. You will only be charged for one entry fee, by using a coupon code provided by the administrator.

Further instructions, important dates, submission requirements, and more are available once you go to register online.

Our Student Art Gallery

Supporting student art and artists is a major purpose for our annual festival. Art teachers from Canby and Wilsonville High Schools set up an amazing display of their students’ creations in the Lewis & Clark rooms upstairs in the Charbonneau Activity Center.

Don’t Miss the always popular Silent Auction. Friday evening only as a part of our Opening Night Celebration!

We are hopeful that our artists, artisans, and local business donors will be able to contribute in some way again this year. With everyone’s safety in mind, we plan to launch once again our very popular auction beginning at the Opening Night Celebration.
