Our ever popular Patron's Program: Patron's Choice Awards are given to individuals or businesses who commit to spending a minimum of $200 on artwork at the Festival. This commitment demonstrates community support for the artists. The Patrons select work for purchase, then give the artist[s] a prestigious 'Patron's Choice Award' ribbon to be placed in his/her booth. The amount spent by Patrons at the 2017 Festival exceeded $200,000!
