The Daniel Boone Pioneer Festival

The festival started in 1975 with a few local artists displaying their artwork around the courthouse. In the early 1980's they showed their work inside the firehouse before it became city hall. It eventually grew into an art and craft festival with people setting up tables, evolving into what it is now, 100 booths with local and out of state artisans.

The Guild collects the proceeds, which are used to support local art projects in Clark County, and scholarships for local college students majoring in art.

To financially support activities the guild has sponsored the Arts and Crafts booths at the Daniel Boone Pioneer Festival. Guild members started displaying art around the court house square in 1973 and the festival grew from those humble beginnings. Thousands of people come to Winchester Labor Day weekend for the festivities that begin with a street dance on Main Street on Friday night, Arts and Crafts on Saturday and Sunday, and a finale concert and fireworks on Sunday night.
