We had a great time. How about you?
It's all over for another year and our thanks go out to all of you who attended. We hope you ate and drank and danced and bought lots of art! We had a record turnout in near-perfect weather (save a bit of gusty windy here and there.) It's always great to see old friends as well meeting new people. The many smiling faces make it all worth while!
Award Winners for 2016!
Every year we are amazed at the quality of art on display at the Festival. Have a look at the award winners from 2016 here. So hard to choose, right? Congratulations to this year's winners.
Thanks once again to all the volunteers who worked so hard at the event. And a BIG thanks to our sponsors for giving us the financial support year after year. Please patronize these local businesses and thank them for supporting the Festival.
