In fact, it’s one of the most important community meetings in the area! The annual art show has been held on the North Idaho College campus for more than 50 years, and it is a wonderful opportunity to locate the ideal piece of art for your house or to catch up with friends. Perhaps you’d like to simply stroll about and take in the sights, listen to one of the many musical acts, watch a play, or simply purchase some food from one of the several vendors. As soon as you have finished touring the campus, you can go down the road – or take advantage of the free shuttle service – to the downtown street fair, where you will discover hundreds of different booths with exhibitors, food, and other attractions.
