Trails West! 2017

"Total Eclipse of the Arts"

Trails West!® 2017 promises to deliver an incredible weekend of music, entertainment, and visual arts on August 18-21 in Civic Center Park in St. Joseph, Missouri. 

We are currently taking applications for artists and food vendors. Each year over 30,000 people visit the festival. This year St. Joseph is in the path of the solar eclipse and Trails West! ® will serve as a primary viewing spot. We anticipate our audience to nearly double this year. If you have a quality product to sell, we encourage you to apply.
