ONTARIO – The daylong Tradition Keepers Folklife Festival at Four Rivers Cultural Center will showcase a slightly different look this year but there will still be plenty for local residents to see and do this Saturday.

The free event, which highlights eastern Oregon’s traditional arts and artists, will consist of two sessions this year.

In the past, the event was geared toward a more one-on-one experience between with various artists who displayed work from bead and cradleboard making, silversmith artistry and horsehide whip braiding.

This year, though, the event will be more virtual because of Covid, said Allison Simon, Four Rivers Cultural Center programing and outreach coordinator.
