In 2012, more than 1,000 people participated in the event as canoeists, bikers and hikers made their way down the Grand and took the time to explore the creativity of artists and artisans who exhibited their work along the banks of the river in Cayuga.

Artists selected by the jury to display at the final destination of the canoe route and hiking trails will be at the center of all the many activities. 10' X 10' booths are $50 (plus a refundable deposit.) Artists must supply their own tents or canopies. You can find further information and apply online at . Applications must be received by May 31, 2013, to be considered for entry into the show.
