“We were very happy with the attendance and generally the mood was very high,” said Nancy Fox, director. “It is a lot to juggle to meet the needs of so many from food vendors to artists to performers. Our mission is to provide for all arts and we try to balance the artist vendors with performance opportunities onstage with a ready-made audience for these young performers to appear in front of. It’s often tough to find a balance between the noise level for the music and the vendors who need to talk with customers. Each year we work to improve the experience for everyone and have already begun planning for next year.”

The arts organization offers all arts for all ages, classes, theatre productions, summer art camp for children and a gallery for artists to display their work.
