River Clay artists, patrons and volunteers:

With cautious optimism, River Clay’s Steering Committee and Board of Directors have all kept their hopes up, wanting to hear that this area’s COVID-19 numbers were receding, that businesses were beginning to recover and that life as we knew it was slowly but surely returning. Unfortunately, at this time, these hopes have not been translated to reality.

Therefore we have chosen to operate with utmost safety in mind and will not be hosting River Clay Fine Arts Festival 2020. This was a very difficult decision to make. River Clay is supported by many patrons, businesses and civic groups who all give most generously of their time and money. Our volunteers, staff and workers are second to none and we want all to remain safe and healthy and to be able to always provide you the absolute best event we possibly can. Unfortunately, the ongoing COVID-19 situation makes this goal almost impossible to achieve this year.

Artists, you should receive information regarding full refunds and jury status for River Clay 2021. If you have any questions, please email

It is our sincere hope that during this time next year, we are eagerly planning for the return of River Clay Fine Arts Festival. Until then, stay healthy and be safe! We miss you all and we will see you again in 2021.

Sincerely –

River Clay Fine Arts Festival
Board of Directors & Steering Committee
