The Festival consists of 140 visual artists displaying their original work in 12x12 booths, strolling musicians, scheduled stage performances, children's activities and food booths. The art work presented will be from a variety of media including painting, photography, printmaking, handmade paper, wood, jewelry, clay, sculpture, fiber, mixed media and glass. Within these categories will be a variety of styles from traditional to abstract in a variety of price ranges with the goal being "something for everyone."
