The organizers of Charbonneau Festival of the Arts are pleased to announce the People’s Choice Awards from our first Virtual Exhibition and extension of the festival site through the end of the year.  Purchase direct from our artists and musicians during the holidays.

The hundreds of guests to the Vitual Exhibition have voted, and their choices are noted below. Congratulations to our winners!

 “Art with Flair – The Virtual Exhibition” has received rave reviews, with hundreds of views each day. With that in mind, the board of Charbonneau Arts Association has voted to extend festival website through the end of November.  This means all can continue to enjoy the Art Gallery, Music Stage, Student Art, the Pandemic Art Project, and the Blackfish Gallery livestream videos.

The Silent Auction still closes on October 31 at 10:00 P.M., so if you haven’t taken the opportunity to bid, there’s still about 24 hours remaining. A few of the big-ticket items have had price reductions, so be sure to get in on the fun, all to benefit the art programs at Canby and Wilsonville High Schools.

Visit the auction at and follow the links to the festival and auction pages.

Our sincere thanks to all our participating artists, musicians, our many sponsors, donors, supporters, and many volunteers this year. We could not have brought you this year’s virtual exhibition with every one of you.

We will share more with you over the coming weeks the results.

All our best,

Rick Cady, Chair
Charbonneau Festival of the Arts 2020
