Umpqua Valley Arts Presents:
The 54th Annual Summer Arts Festival
Application Deadline: May 15, 2023
We are announcing a call to artists for the Umpqua Valley Arts’ Summer Arts Festival (SAF).
Held annually in Roseburg OR since 1971, it is the largest of its kind in Southern Oregon. For over 50 years, this favorite summertime kick-off event has been a gathering ground for artists, entertainers, vendors, community members, and visitors, bringing together over 10,000 people the last weekend of June in Roseburg’s lush Fir Grove Park. From the artist vendor to the festival guests, SAF is a one-of-a-kind experience for all to celebrate the abundance of artistic and creative talent found in the Land of Umpqua and beyond.
SAF is a community arts and culture event presented by UVA, a rural Oregon nonprofit with the mission to ‘create and foster a climate that supports arts appreciation, participation, and education. Proceeds from this event support UVA’s year-round work to provide arts and cultural experiences and essential education opportunities in rural Oregon.
The three-day festival hosts over 100 artist vendors, has nonstop live music from local and regional bands, highlights Pacific Northwest culinary arts and craft beverages and so much more.
Summer Arts Festival is planned and executed by UVA’s staff of 5, 9 board members, a community planning committee, and hundreds of volunteers, with the support of numerous community partners and sponsors.
