Thank you for your interest in showcasing your art at the 12th Annual River City Roots Festival. Each year, more than 30 artists from around the Rocky Mountain West participate in an art show featuring painting, photography, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, textile arts and woodwork -- all front and center on Main Street both days of the festival.  This year the Roots Fest Art Show is looking to feature not only traditional, "fine" art - such as paintings, pottery, and photography - but also feature more "alternative" means of art that is seen at the wildly popular Missoula MADE Fairs.  While Missoula's "Roots" have a base in fine art, we are seeing more and more that alternative forms of art are also just as important to Missoula's spirit.  As such, we hope to have a mix of "traditional" and "non-traditional" artists showcased at this year's River City Roots Festival.

The festival will be held on Friday and Saturday, August 25-26, 2017.    The art show hours are 11am-7pm both days and daily set-up time is 8am. The booth fee is $150 for both days; $175 for a double booth and/or a booth needing power. Artists must commit to being present both daysAll applications must be submitted by Friday, April 7, 2017.   Please note that submission does not guarantee selection as space is limited. River City Roots Festival does not take a percentage of your sales.
