Youth Art Contest

Young artists wanted! Show off your talent in the Youth Art Contest for a chance for prize money.  There are many ways, and reasons to say "Thank You" and this year, more than ever, we have many reasons to share our gratitude. We would like to invite young artists to share their interpretation of this year's theme: "A Pumpkin Full of Thank You!" In honor of our hometown heroes. 

The original artwork will amaze and delight festival goers while it is prominently displayed in the festival's Art Walk.
