New Year and 2 New Dates for 2010

We have decided to hold the Downtown Art & Wine Festival on Saturday, May 22nd and also Saturday, October 2nd. Rather than 3 dates, there will be 2, so the board and the artists and vineyards can have a bit more time to prepare their work!

We have changed a few things this year, and I am sure you will be pleased.

First, we have changed the days to Saturday instead of Fridays. This way, maybe people can make a day out of their visits, and people will probably be more able to vend that way. We want to make it as easy as possible for vendors and attendees!

Also, we are revising the artists' application, which will be sent out and available this week. It will include a map of the grounds. Artists will be able to choose their favorite spot this year, and it is a first come - first serve basis. So, get your applications in as soon as possible, so someone else does not get your spot!! We are also going to mingle the vineyards' tents with the artists' tents, to get as much traffic to everyone as possible.

Many things will stay the same, like the great appearance of 2 bands, and a nice selection of Southern Illinois Vineyards. Come and sample many many local wines, and feast on some local foods. We can't wait to show you what we have to offer!!

If you want to participate, feel free to contact me at KatEyez62707 (at) or contact Courtney at courtney (at)

I will update you with a bit more of the final details soon, and I will also post the application here for you to print off.

Take Care!
