The “Salida Arts Fair” is one of the premier arts destinations in Colorado. Salida was rated #30 in John Villani’s book “The 100 best art towns in America”. The festival is located on, and visible from one of the major east/west highways in the state. Over 15,000 cars a day drive right by the show site. It is also located adjacent to the Salida Aquatic Center, a natural hot springs swimming pool, a major draw in the Salida area.
