The Salem Art Fair & Festival is produced by the Salem Art Association (SAA), a nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to art education, art appreciation, and historic preservation. The growing arts scene in Salem, Oregon is one of the many attractive features of our city and supporting organizations like SAA helps to bring more cultural enrichment to our community.
“Not only does this event support hundreds of artists, vendors, and community organizations, it’s also a vital fundraiser for the Salem Art Association (SAA), a non-profit established in 1919,” says the group on their Facebook page. “Admission prices and memorabilia purchases help fund SAA’s core programs: the Bush Barn Art Center, the Annex and Community Arts Education. Each year, SAA brings arts education to thousands of students in Marion, Polk, and Yamhill counties; supports artists of all ages and experience levels through opportunities to create and showcase their work; connects the community to the arts through free-of-charge exhibitions and events, and provides an ever-expanding view into Salem’s heritage.”
