The festival includes a juried arts and crafts sale, student art contest, farmers market, musical performances, kids’ art make and take, food and fun. The event is managed by the Washington County Campus Foundation, with all proceeds supporting scholarships.

More than 30 area middle and high schools participate in the student art contest. Each school submits 15 pieces of its top artworks in a variety of media. All of the artwork is judged by professionals, with ribbons and other prizes awarded at a special ceremony.
