1/29/18   The Board of Directors has decided to make our festival a biennial event. The next one will be in the summer of 2019, probably the last weekend in July, but until the venue contract is signed, we cannot be more specific.

The reason for this is simple:  After holding six successful festivals, it was clear that preparing for one requires more time than we had been allowing, and other activities of the Society were not getting sufficient attention; to meet our obligation to our members and to our mission, we had to make a change.

We expect this will make an even more enjoyable event for attendees, and we have already had some rave reviews of our past festivals. The 2016 festival drew approximately 900 visitors from 39 states and 8 countries; more than half came from out of state, not just out of town!

We will keep you posted on plans for 2019 as they are developed.
