Trails West!® 2017

"Total Eclipse of the Arts"

Call to Fine Artists


Cash prizes totaling $3,500 will be awarded.

Show dates: August 18-21, 2017

Join us in St. Joseph, Missouri, August 18-21, 2017 to celebrate Trails West!® festival’s 25th year and the total solar eclipse in one fun-filled, exciting weekend! Artists, musicians and more gather for this three-day, outdoor festival to celebrate the unique heritage of St. Joseph every year, but the 2017 festival is extra special. As a result of St. Joseph being one of the prime locations to view the first total solar eclipse in 99 years, we will be welcoming approximately 50-500,000 additional tourists to the community and extending the festival an extra day! That makes being an artist at the 2017 Trails West!® festival the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your work and bring awareness to your talents!
