Trails West!® is an outdoor arts festival celebrating the unique cultural heritage of St. Joseph, Missouri. Now in its 21st year, the festival features fine arts, fine craft and unique foods. This is a juried festival with room for approximately 60 fine artists and crafters and 25 food vendors.
Trails West!® welcomes all genres and subject matter of artistic expression. While the festival's ambiance is historic, the arts and crafts do not need to represent our history.
Trails West!® is the largest festival in northwest Missouri and draws audiences from over 100 miles including southeast Nebraska, northeast Kansas, southwest Missouri and Kansas City. Last year the festival recorded over 40,000 visits over the three days.
