In 2016, as has become tradition, an eclectic assortment of bands will play throughout the entire day. a family friendly admission price - FREE!  Over 70 artists, featuring an eclectic mix of original art and unique artisan items for sale.  Each year brings new talent as well as many favorite repeat vendors.
