Friday, August 15th 2014 - All Day

Of course, it just wouldn’t be summer in Yankton without the annual Summer Arts Festival in conjunction with Riverboat Days, this year to take place August 15-17. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Summer Arts Fest, and YAA is once again planning for an amazingly artful time. Over 160 booth spaces will fill with fine art and fine crafts for the community and guests to enjoy. Additionally, YAA will present Jami Lynn and Dylan James in concert as well as Dallas Chief Eagle and his daughter in a cultural hoop dancing program.

The summer calendar tells no lies: Yankton Area Arts is committed to bringing quality arts programming and cultural enrichment to the Yankton community.
