It is a landmark year for the arts in Salina. This year is the 50th anniversary of the Salina Arts and Humanities organization, the 40th anniversary of the organization’s premier event the Smoky Hill River Festival, the 30th anniversary of the Smoky Hill Museum, which is where the organization is located.
The 2016 Smoky Hill River Festival, the annual celebration of the arts, is June 9th – June 12th in Oakdale Park.
Salina Arts and Humanities Director Brad Anderson gave all of the credit for the continued success of the event to the “seven staff members, twenty-two committees, and over 2,000 volunteers who work together to pull it off.”
Two of those staff members, Stacy Ash and Grace Peterson, sat down with KSAL News Director Todd Pittenger for an edition of “Your City in Action” on Access TV. They discussed all things Smoky Hill River Festival – including the entertainment, the arts and crafts, and the food. They also discussed a new festival favorite, the Festival Quest Medallion Hunt.
The program can currently be seen at various times throughout the next several days, and is also available online.
