Our People

The Festival is produced by a very small professional staff augmented by our hard working Committee. The Committee is comprised of community members and exhibiting artists. As a non-profit organization, the Festival is governed by its Board of Directors who have fiscal and policy responsibility for all aspects of the Festival. The Staff, Board and Committee work all year long to prepare for our annual Fall Festival.
