69th Annual Salem Art Fair & Festival
July 20-22, 2018
The Salem Art Fair & Festival is located in Bush’s Pasture Park, at 600 Mission Street SE. Nestled under the canopy of towering White Oak trees, the Art Fair takes place in one of Salem’s most picturesque destinations. The 90-acre park also features woodland areas, open meadows, a rose garden, playgrounds, and sports fields. And it’s the home of the Salem Art Association, which operates the Bush Barn Art Center and Annex, and the Bush House Museum. Below you will find information on getting to the event.

Walk & Bike
Walking or biking to the Art Fair is a great way to take in the scenery along the way. Entrances are conveniently located on all sides of the event. There are also two bike stations located to the north and south where you can stash your ride.
HUT Shuttle & Green Bike Cab
Every year, HUT Portland Airport Shuttle sponsors FREE rides from two convenient downtown Salem locations. Park your car at Marion or Pringle parkades (350 Marion St NE or 325 High St SE), and hitch a ride Saturday from 10 am-7 pm or Sunday from 10 am-5 pm.
Green Bike Cab will also be running the same route as the shuttle Friday, Saturday and Sunday during event hours.
Let’s face it, driving is convenient. However, be mindful that parking can be limited. The nearest parking spots are in the stadium lot along Mission Street SE, and along the streets surrounding the park. Handicapped parking can be found on Leffelle Street SE, and in the parking lot that connects to the Bush Barn Art Center and the Bush House Museum, on Bush Street SE.
Lyft is a new service for Salem, allowing you to quickly hail a driver to your location right from your smartphone.
