Kids' Activity Area

Our festival is a favorite of young and not so young alike. The young ones particularly like the ability to create their own art. We have a place at the festival that they can do just that. Their parents can also borrow sidewalk chalk from the Welcome Tent if the young artist prefers a bigger canvas! Hours of operation for the Kids' Activity Area are:
Friday, June 6, 2014- 5pm - 7pm
Saturday, June 7, 2014 - 10am - 7pm
Sunday, June 8, 2014 - 12 pm - 4pm
Sidewalk chalk available at any time during festival hours.

Wine Tasting All Weekend
