If you are an artist in the Mid-Willamette Valley you are strongly encouraged to apply and be part of a unique summer festival that takes place in the heart of a forested park in Salem.

The Englewood Forest Festival has opened the venue to not only Salem artists, but artists in the nearby towns of Keizer, Silverton, Monmouth, Turner, Sublimity, Jefferson, Rickreall, Dallas and other communities in the region.

Entrance to the festival is free, and celebrates art, community, local cottage industries and the environment. Festivities include music, dancing, food and local nonprofits and vendors.

Englewood is Salem’s oldest park at 1260 19th St. NE in Salem, and the remnant of a forest that once blanketed the area.

The festival is open to all artists and craftspeople producing original, handcrafted work as well as small businesses in Northeast Salem, and environmental nonprofits.

Two artists may share a booth; however, both individuals must submit separate applications and fees. Artists and vendors must staff their booth for the duration of the festival.

The application for artists is online at https://englewoodforestfestival.com/.

The Englewood Forest Festival is sponsored by Englewood Forest Festival, Northeast Neighbors (NEN), with support from N2 Community Partnership Team and the City of Salem.
