Many of the artists participating are locals, so this gives attendees a chance to get to know people in their community.

This is a free event that gives guests plenty of opportunities to have a hands-on approach to different mediums of art as well.

The family-friendly festival will feature live music, local food stops, and even a kid’s zone loaded with fun-filled games, art projects, face painting, and bounce house.
