Bluff Arts Festival

Corner of 3rd and Mulberry Streets


This annual autumn event started in 2005 at St. Christopher's Mission and quickly spread across town.  From the beginning, the festival has pulled together our broader community.  The Navajo Reservation borders our town bringing the culture of the Navajo people into Bluff's style.  The area's early inhabitants, Native Americans, have contributed to the art and folklore of the region.  Ancient art sites, rich diverse cultures and a vibrant modern art community make Bluff an ideal site for our festival.
