This art show takes place with the Farm to Fiddle Festival and the Delta County Fair happening during the middle of this show’s run. Perhaps people will stop by all of these events to take in fine art, fiddle and other music as well as giant hogs, turkeys and the ranch competition. Who knows. The Festival and Fair run during the weekend of August 12 & 13.
