Where We Came From

 

 Our first arts fest was in July of 2003 at Indiana Downs and remained there until 2008 when it was moved to downtown Shelbyville. The art students of the county participated in the creation of many of the park benches located around town and in private yards and homes. Our first fest was highlighted by huge 6 foot tall bears decorated by the students and auctioned as a fund raiser. We have celebrated the visual arts through month long exhibitions of student and adult art. We have celebrated the musical arts by hosting all-day concerts the day of the fest. We have celebrated the support of the arts by hosting vendors at our fests. We have celebrated the arts by dancing in the streets and by featuring opportunities for our local arts organizations to become better known. And we continue to celebrate the arts. Join us.
