Easter Decoy & Art Festival

Celebrate the history and craft of decoy carving as local and national carvers and artists of all kinds exhibit and sell their work at the Easter Decoy & Art Festival.

Awards are given in various carving categories, art and photography. Special awards are given for best carving display and best art display. There is also a Children’s Choice Award given for a favorite artist. The Curtis Merritt Award of Excellence is awarded to the exhibitor who displays excellence as an individual, as well as an artist and/or carver. This award is voted on by the exhibitors.

Wooden Easter eggs hand carved and/or painted by various exhibitors will be offered in a silent auction. The auction has been a highlight of the show each year, with some eggs fetching handsome sums. Learn more.
