Our Eighth Annual Art & Outdoor Fest is only four months away, and preparations are under way for this year’s event to be held Saturday, August 5, 2017 from 10am-4pm on the grounds of Shank’s Mare.
This festival is designed to celebrate the environmental, outdoor, and cultural treasures present in the Lower Susquehanna River area. Our Fest grew again last year, and we continue to find the same folks who have a love of the outdoors and nature, also have a love of art and creativity. We are marrying these two passions into this one event, thus the Art & Outdoor Fest idea.
The Art & Outdoor Fest will feature local artists displaying their work in booths on our grounds overlooking the Susquehanna River. Local non-profit outdoor, historic, and cultural organizations will have displays promoting their missions along with information on the wide array of activities and programs in our area. Our Lock 2 Café will be open for food. Live music will play from 1-3pm.
Once again this year, we welcome the Pennsylvania Parks & Forests Foundation who will display their traveling photography show “Through the Seasons” featuring the winners of their 2016 photo contest. We are also anticipating joining with the York Art Association to feature their summer exhibit of member artwork. We look forward to this attracting an even larger audience for this year’s event.
Applications for booth space at this year's event can be obtained by emailing us at email@example.com. We ask that you complete and return the application to us, along with the nominal booth fee of $50 (no booth fee for non-profit organizations), no later than July 31, 2017.
We hope you will join us for this event. It will be a day full of art and activity, food at the Lock 2 Café, and live music. Please contact Liz at 717-252-1616 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions at all. Go Play Outside!
