ColorFest is Looking for Fine Artists and Crafters

Colorfest, a Dillsboro Fine Arts & Crafts Fair, is looking for artists of all media to participate in this 6th annual fine art festival to be held on October 4, 2014 in the historic town of Dillsboro, NC. Regional fine artists and crafters are encouraged to apply.
Within the colors of autumn, the town of Dillsboro will welcome visitors to this walk-about town where the artisans will be displaying their works.

Church Street will be sectioned off for food booths. 
Interacting with the public from 10 AM until 4 PM on October 4,  artisans have the opportunity to show how their art is created as well as selling their artwork.

This year cash prizes, sponsored by Champion Credit Union, will be awarded to the artisans. Categories:  First place for fine art $100; Second place for fine art $50. First place for fine craft $100; second place for fine craft. Best of Show—Booth $150.
