In 2013 the City of Ketchum was ranked #3 in America’s Top 12 Small-Town ArtPlaces. It is home to a well-educated, sophisticated community who has chosen this mountain resort town. Each summer Ketchum’s population swells to accommodate a large number of second home owners who come for the season as well as summer tourists who come for a week or weekend.

The Festival takes place at Atkinson Park which is in the community core and a few blocks from downtown Ketchum. This grassy park is a hub for both tourists and locals alike.
