Kern River Valley Art Association (KRVAA)

KRVAA Festival
Kern River Valley Art Association’s ‘Sierra Arts & Crafts Festival’

The Kern River Valley Art Association is a private, 501 (c3) non-profit, public benefit organization. We are dedicated to supporting Artists and Crafters in our community. KRVAA depends on volunteers for its operation. We are always in need of new volunteers, so please let us know if you would like to help.

Further, KRVAA supports not only visual art, but also Music, Drama, Dance, and Literature. There are also public murals throughout our Kern River Valley. Therefore we have an active Public Art Program to celebrate the public art in our valley.

Our web site is a vehicle for artists to show their work to the public. Please check out our Artists Page and our schedule of public art displays and events every month. Our Artist’s and Crafters are dedicated to their work. Their artworks are for sale and they very much appreciate your business. Please shop local and support our community’s Artists and Crafters. Established in 1962, we at KRVAA celebrate our 58th year of service to our community as of 2020, on both Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.

The Kern River Valley is located in the Southern Sierra Nevada mountains. The white waters and craggy cliffs of the Kern River and the towering mountains cradling Lake Isabella are a constant inspiration to the creativity that abounds in this valley – which is a four seasons resort community. Check out our annual festivals attended by thousands of arts and crafts enthusiasts, artists, crafters and vendors.
