The Salem Art Fair & Festival is located in beautiful Bush’s Pasture Park, just outside downtown Salem.
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.
