Ketchikan’s Wearable Arts Show dates all the way back to 1987. Since then, the performance has garnered statewide attention — For many local residents and members of the art community, it is THE EVENT OF THE YEAR. Last year the spectacular event was put on hold due to the pandemic. This year organizers have put together a lineup of events that will not disappoint. As they say in the biz, the show must go on. Here’s the April 15-18, 2021 lineup of events:
