Arts & Crafts vendors will once again be outside, in traditional festival fashion! Come and enjoy a great variety of items brought to you by over 30 artisans and craftspeople. This year we are working in conjunction with the Red Barn Studio to invite folks from all over the Midwest, as well as the local talent, to join us under the tent and show off their wares. Look for us in the lot just north of the Red Barn, where the Brunswick Hotel previously stood.
