Times have been trying, but fostering community-building while supporting local businesses and artists will always be our passion. This year we present the theme of "Re-routing”, exploring how we each navigate ourselves ecologically, socially, emotionally and locally. We hope this years projects spark a sense of togetherness.

Explore while respecting social distancing.
