66th Annual Kiwanis Club Art Fiesta

A Call for Artists has been issued for the 66th Annual Kiwanis Club Art Fiesta, to be held at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center in Sacramento on June 1 and 2.  This is a juried fine art show with high-quality standards that draws great crowds (more than 1,700 visitors last year from all around the Sacramento area).  The venue is a secured indoor location, with great amenities and parking near Sacramento State College.

More information about the Fiesta is available online. Click for a copy of the application. There is space for just 77 artists, with booth assignments on a first-come basis – so don’t delay if you are interested.

This information was brought to FAA’s attention by FAA member Chris Hedges.  Members participating for the first time are encouraged to note (on their application) that Chris Hedges is the artist who referred them.

2024 Membership Dues

Last year, FAA amended its membership year, so that memberships now run from January through December each year. New members and members can register on-line. We have also implemented an additional on-line payment option for members who do not use PayPal; and payment by mailed check, or cash in person at a membership meeting are also accepted. Memberships not renewed by the end of February will lapse.

Membership benefits include a list of activities all year long! The FAA Board recently enacted an increase of $5 to our annual dues. For 2024, memberships are $30 for individuals / $45 for families – still a great bargain for all.
