The Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council (KAAHC) began the Wearable Art Show in 1986 at the old Black Box Theater in the Red Men building. Six pieces were worn and paraded around the audience. It was so successful, they went around twice! The Wearable Art Show has since become one of Ketchikan’s favorite events inspiring exciting, artful expression when Ketchikan needs it most. Since its beginning, the Wearable Art Show has been copied in communities across Alaska and in Washington. Always the weekend of the first Saturday in February, the Wearable Art Show has become KAAHC's largest fundraiser. 

In its second year, the Ketchikan Youth Wearable Art Show features artists under 18 in their own event! Coupled with Youth Wearable Art Classes around the community, the Youth Wearable Art Show nurtures Ketchikan's newest Wearable artists!
