2017 PRE-FESTIVAL WORKSHOPS|
Pre-Festival activities provide an opportunity to learn from visual and performing artists who will be involved in the Festival. Pre-Festival workshops include opportunities for both young people and adults in a variety of artistic disciplines. Check back here in spring for details on the 2016 pre-festival workshops.
The treasure-hunt begins on Friday, May 26, 2017, when a hand-crafted medallion will be hidden on public property somewhere in Salina. Clues will be released to the Medallion Quest Clues news feed on the Medallion Quest page of the River Festival website twice daily until the medallion is found. Clues will also be posted on the west entry doors of the Arts and Humanities office located at 211 W. Iron Ave.
