2019 Paulette Rush Arts & Crafts Show

One of the best arts & crafts shows in the country. 2019 will see many fine artisans returning for yet another Walnut Valley Festival. Many of the more than 100 displays will be first-timers, producing drawings, paintings, jewelry, woodcrafts, glass, metalwork, baskets, pottery, weaving/spinning, leather, herbals & soaps, childrens’ items, a number of food-related items and much more. Artists, crafters, and luthiers come to Walnut Valley from over 20 states… Washington to Alabama, California to Pensylvania, and lots of local favorites.

Look for opportunities for kids’ participation in the arts and crafts this year, several on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
