Special Exhibit featured artist Dan Burkholder, fine art photographer/educator; Julia Dolan, Portland Art Museum’s photography curator and Charles A. Hartman, founder and director of Charles A. Hartman Fine Art in Portland, will be among the show’s judges.

The Festival, now in its 49th year, has grown to include an open art show of over 1,000 pieces of art by more than 350 artists, a craft faire featuring more than 110 artists, interactive art demonstrations and a juried exhibit of 2-D and 3-D work. This festival attracts 25,000 people. The celebration of art features interactive art demonstrations, a performing art series with music in the park, special hands-on art exhibits and a children’s art and performance venue.
