Performing companies, dance schools, community groups, and area folk groups have their time to shine.

Heritage Arts demonstrate traditional arts, crafts, and trades, including woodcarving, engraving, spinning, weaving, and other skills in the Heritage Arts Area.

Children become artists at the Children’s Arts Festival with numerous hands-on art activities. All children’s art activities are free, fun, and geared toward children toddler age and older.

Over 2,000 pieces of art from elementary, middle, and high school students will be on display.
