This exciting annual event features a wonderful display of artwork, lots of awards ribbons, hands-on activities, and musical performances by area youths. The show was first initiated in 1989 by local photographer Doris Woempner, and has been chaired over the years by several tireless youth-art supporters including- Joan Madsen and, from 2009 to 2015, Leah Johnson and Will Roundy. For the past four years, Maria Were who lives in Lostine and works for Building Healthy Families has led the show. The Wallowa Valley Arts Council proudly sponsors the Youth Arts Festival each year and applauds the many volunteers who work so hard to bring us this fun-filled extravaganza.

We are so excited that this year the Youth Arts Festival moves from the Joseph Community Center to the Josephy Center! Saturday, April 20 marks a day of festivities, food, and art activities from 10am-4pm.
