The VISION: Four years ago, Teresa Stern the founder and volunteer, created this event to increase economic development within the Harrisburg Town Center with community involvement, The event also supports arts in schools and provides a local art student with a scholarship to continue their education in the arts. What started with 10 vendors, blossomed to more than 100 artists from all walks of life. We encourage youth to get involved with this event and network with the more seasoned artists for experience and pointers.
In April 2016, we presented a $1,500.00 Scholarship to Julia Quigley of Hickory Ridge High School. She is now a student at UNCS Ashville studying Graphic Design. It is the desire to match that amount and strive for more to give another student.
This event is to build awareness for the need to keep the arts in our schools and to promote the arts within our community - bringing families & friends and communities all over to come together--one event at a time.
