This year there are over 70 new artists participating in the festival. There is a dynamic kids area with face painting, KSL kids booth, scavenger hunt, and various art projects and demonstrations including a community mosaic project. lululemon Athletica is conducting complimentary yoga for festival attendees on the Zoom/Sky Lodge patio every morning at 9 am, and the top of Main St will be turned into a work of art during the chalk art competition on Saturday morning.
