2023 Festival Medallion Quest

2023 Festival Medallion Quest Winner Announced and Clues Explained 

The Festival Medallion Quest (FMQ) began as a way to bring families together and out into the landscape to celebrate the arts in a different way and to encourage patronage of the exhibiting artists.​ Over the years, families have searched side by side, solved riddles, and endeavored to find the Medallion. The Quest has grown larger each year, and now you can actually feel the collective buzz in the air as the first day of the Quest draws close.  It marks the official countdown to the River Festival.



  1. There will be clues released at 7:30 am and 4:30 pm daily on the Quest website, beginning at 4:00 pm Wednesday, May 17, on the steps of the Smoky Hill Museum. The clues will also be posted outside the west doors (*8th St) at the Salina Arts & Humanities office on the corner of 8th and Iron Ave.

  2. The clues may be general or specific in nature and may have to be rearranged to make sense. Clues will be released at the specified times listed above until the Medallion is found.

  3. While the Medallion may blend in with the environment, absolutely no destruction of property is necessary in order to solve the Quest.

  4. See the CLUES link above to get started, and GOOD LUCK!



The Medallion has clear instructions regarding how to contact the River Festival in order to redeem the prize. Announcements will be made on the Quest website and on social media once it is verified to have been found. A press conference will be held shortly after the winner has been verified.
