About art under the elms

Art Under the Elms (AUE) began in 1984 as a celebration of the arts in north central Idaho. AUE is one of the largest outdoor shows in Idaho, featuring over 100 Artisan vendors, food court and live entertainment with two stages showcasing regional musicians and performance artists. The International Food Court, located next to the amphitheater stage, is open to the general public and offers a variety of dishes from food vendors from throughout the northwest.

Children are encouraged to create their own art with the Center for Arts & History in the Interactive Art & Entertainment Tent on the Artisan Green. Techniques are taught by local artisans’ and participants can create their very own works. Families may also join the Dogwood Fairies for tea time and engage in a lesson on party etiquette then create their own fairy garden. This annual three-day event is held on the Lewis-Clark State College campus in Lewiston the last full weekend in April. AUE is the signature event of the month long Dogwood Festival of the Lewis-Clark Valley and welcomes over 14,000 for this one event.

All proceeds from Art Under the Elms benefit the LC State Center for Arts & History. 

Over 200 volunteers from the community join with staff from LCSC to make this event a success each year. 


$4 for the entire weekend. Which includes entry to the Artisan Green, Dogwood Tea Fairy Tent and the Family Fun Fair.

Food Court and SUB Amphitheater are FREE!
