The 6th Annual Y Bridge Festival is looking for artists to take part in their event this August 1st and 2nd. 

The new deadline for artists to register for the event is April 30th. New artists will be juried in. Artists who have participated in the previous five festivals are automatically invited.

"We are looking for artists, visual artists, working in all medias, we are also looking for food venders, performers, musicians, bands, we’re having a full program," said Linda Regula, Co-Director of the Y Bridge Arts Festival. "It brings people into our downtown. I want our downtown to prosper, to thrive, and when you have anywhere from five to eight thousand people coming in on a weekend, they eat in restaurants, they buy gas, they stay in hotels, they shop, and they bring money into our local economy."

Regional, state, and national artists are all welcome. There is a $75 booth fee. There will be a best of show competition with a $500 first prize. This year, there will also be a special collaborative exhibit by artists to honor veterans.
