About Us

SVACA is a non-profit organization, and our goal is to encourage and promote cultural activites in North Dakota and surrounding areas.  We support art education in schools, the Ransom County Museum, and have sponsored classes for drawing, stamping, painting, and others.


The Board of Directors is a group of 19 people from the surrounding area who are elected to serve three-year terms (as directors) or two-year terms (as officers).   They meet once a month to talk about buildings and ground maintenance, to plan for summer and fall events (parades, art shows), and prepare for the fall festival. 


SVACA sponsors events and opportunities for artists and craftspersons throughout the year.  A co-op store is opened in Sheyenne Hall Memorial Day weekend through mid-September,  in which vendors sell arts, crafts, antiques, and many unique, interesting items.   It is open Saturdays, and Sundays from 12 - 5 pm, and Tuesday evenings from 6-9 pm.  It is also open for holidays such as Memorial Day, the Independence Day, and Labor Day.  It can be opened any other time by contacting one of the store committee/board members.


Annual Fall Festival 

The Arts & Crafts Fall Festival is held every year the last FULL weekend of September.  Bear Creek Hall is used for an art show and displays, as well as demonstrations by local artists.
