The Main Street Arts and Crafts Festival has been a part of the summer activities in Hot Springs since 1976. Local business owners Art and Beulah Donnell wanted to start an event that would showcase the work of local and regional artisans and feature the event as part of the USA Bicentennial. Centennial Park was chosen as the perfect site for the event because it was long and narrow similar to a city street (hence the name “Main Street”). In the early years, only local artisans were involved. Over the years it has grown to include artisans and visitors from several states. It is one of the featured events in the list of summer activities in the South Dakota Visitors Guide and the South Dakota Magazine. Arts & crafts, food vendors, entertainment, and a children’s stage are part of the event.
The summer of 2019 will be the 43rd anniversary of the Main Street Arts and Crafts Festival.
