Special Events


The Salem Art Association has two major fundraising events during the year:

The Salem Art Fair & Festival is an anticipated summer event and SAA’s largest fundraiser, attracting over 30,000 visitors to Salem’s picturesque Bush’s Pasture Park during three days in July. The Clay Ball Art Auction & Dinner is a glamorous, formal event on the last Saturday in February with nearly 500 attendees each year. The ongoing success of these two events is due largely to the generous support of businesses, artists and individuals who donate their resources and/or time in support of our local arts community.
