Madison Valley Arts Festival
Remember the date! Mark your calendar for the 19th Annual Madison Valley Arts Festival on Saturday, August 9th from 10am to 4pm. This fun event will be held at the tree-shaded Peter T.’s Park, in historic downtown Ennis.
Artists from Montana as well as nearby states will be offering their quality work at this juried event. Items offered will include paintings, pottery, furniture, stained glass, jewelry, photography, forged iron, and fiber art among others.
In addition to the 44 arts and crafts booths, there will be delicious and healthy refreshments, a “Meet the Author” book signing, children’s face painting, 50/50 cash raffle, and live entertainment by the talented Ennis Community Band, the popular local Tune Tanglers group, and our own traveling accordion player, Jan Beekman. This annual festival, sponsored by the Ennis Arts Association, will also include a raffle of several donated art pieces; pottery by Anna McClellan, framed giclee by Larry Zabel, framed painting by Arva Wuthrich, set of 12 note cards by Sherril Gold, set of four quilted placemats by Louise Getz, framed "Salmon" drawing by Harvey Eckert, and "Who Needs Birds Anyway" book by Gail Cole. An Ennis Arts Association Member’s Gallery Booth will also display additional quality art for sale. The generous use of the park is courtesy of the First Madison Valley Bank of Ennis. All proceeds from the festival will aid the Ennis Arts Association in local promotion of the arts. For more information please go to www.ennisartsassociation.org or call Jan Beekman at 599-9678.
