River Clay is a juried, rain or shine, outdoor show. Located in the beautiful Tennessee Valley, Decatur is a burgeoning arts community whose City Hall campus is surrounded by Alabama's largest Victorian historic district and a picturesque, revitalized downtown complete with numerous bistros, restaurants and unique retail boutiques. The city of Decatur is conveniently located midway between Nashville and Birmingham. You'll find Huntsville, home of NASA, Redstone Arsenal and numerous technology/engineering firms boasts the highest per-capita level of education and income in Alabama, just 25 minutes to the east.

Now in it's 6th year, the River Clay Fine Arts Festival remains a big hit with artists and collectors in the venerable Southeast fine art festival schedule! Our past participating artists reported great sales, exceptional organization and unparalleled volunteer assistance.

Our dedicated staff provides our artists with volunteer support, including help at load-in and load-out, breakfast, lunch, snacks, water, booth sitters and an artist helpline.

Deccatur shoppersArtist amenities include judging by art professionals, cash awards, personalized service by staff, indoor artist-staff only restrooms, high- quality work, and absolutely no buy/sell.

River Clay is a high-quality show for true professionals. With a maximum of 80 booths, our jury is extremely selective and we strive to present a balanced and impressive show!

New Weekend: 
In hopes of cooler temperatures for our artists and patrons, 
and to get a little closer to the holiday shopping season, 
we've moved River Clay to October 15 - 17. 
Same great festival - just cooler!
