Artwork in every medium will be on sale, most often with the artist on hand. And in an effort to make this year's festival even more of a party, a full slate of bands includes genre-spanning performers Craig Kinsey, 10 YR, the Suffers, the Mighty Orq, Nick Gaitan and Umbrella Man, the Kashmere Stage Band, Thunderado and others. There's also a children's area, a wine garden and an Adult Creative Zone where attendees can find their own inner Picasso or Rockwell or just play with finger paints.
