Memorial Day Weekend

Unless noted, all events are taking place at the
Seeley Lake Community Hall.
North of town on Hwy. 83.

The festival is a celebration of art and nature in the Seeley-Swan and Blackfoot valleys. Inside the Community Hall, 30 artists will have items on display, including wood work, jewelry, watercolor, oils, embroidery, beadwork, origami, ceramics, mixed media, sculpture, photography and more.

Saturday will include the Food Bank Soup Bowl Lunch, where your purchase of a bowl (created by either Bob Korn of Swan Valley’s Kornutopia or Carrie Darrah of Obsession Pottery) gets filled with soup (donated by local restaurants) and the proceeds from the purchase goes to the local food bank. Only 100 bowls are available.

Throughout the weekend, Raffle Tickets will be on sale. ($5/1 ticket or $20/5 tickets). There are three possible prizes including an 11-foot stand-up paddleboard, a Japanese-style walnut and bird’s eye maple lamp by Dona Aitken and a dump truck load (10 cubic yards) of quality top soil donated by Deer Creek Excavating. You decide which item or items you want your raffle tickets to go for. The drawing for each will be at 3 pm on Sunday. You do not need to be present to win.
