The Here and Now
COVID/COVID/COVID — Do we think about much else these days? YES, we do. We are busy working on advertising, emails, telephone calls, reviewing and processing applications, and much more as we look forward to August. Based on what we are hearing, people will be more than willing and ready to go out and about and Festivals will be high on their list of events they wish to attend. They will want to purchase those special works of art for gift giving as well as for their homes.
There may, and probably will, be, some level of COVID Guidelines in place. As most of you know, the grounds of Spotsylvania’s Courthouse are spacious and offer more than adequate room to space our Exhibitors and provide safe walkways for our shoppers. It is the perfect venue for an Arts Festival and please be assured that we will follow the current Guidelines.
The Who, What and Why
The Good News is the same. Our advertising efforts are paying off as we are getting phone calls and applications. We are extremely excited as we know we will continue our history of excellence into future years as our reputation continues to grow. It is our aim to make this one of the best art festivals in the mid-Atlantic Region and beyond.
Yes, there is another Arts Festival this year. Yes, the time is short but we have to start somewhere and feel this is the time. The dates are May 22 and 23. If things progress as anticipated, we will be in a lower phase of COVID guidelines. No matter if we aren’t, there is more than enough space to follow even the most stringent Guidelines.
This new Northern Neck Arts Festival will be held at the Rivah Vineyards at the Grove in Kinsale, VA. Our webmaster is working on our new website. However, if you are interested in receiving more information, please email NNARTS@protonmail.com. Application forms are available.
Today’s Shout Out has to go to Beverly Arbogaste who is helping us with office work. Many of you will remember her from our 2019 Festival. She was the dynamo that kept all of us in line. She is invaluable to us. Thank you Beverly!
