2023 Keeseville Community Arts Festival Recap

Despite occasionally threatening skies, AdkAction’s 2023 Keeseville Community Arts Festival was a huge success. The festival brought the community together across the entire weekend to celebrate the arts and promote downtown revitalization. Here are a few highlights: 

  • With the help of our partners, we promoted 17 different events and activities including art shows, live music, free artisan demonstrations and arts activities for families. 
  • Over 100 youth participated in open art activities across a dozen mediums, from plein air painting to tie dye, pottery, bracelet making, architecture coloring books, face paint, and more.
  • We sold over $36,000 worth of art during the festival through our Plein air events – our largest sale to-date!
  • Just under 500 art lovers walked through the doors of our Plein air show and sale, and we estimate that the festival at large drew over 600 individuals
  • The festival’s first Color Run had 100 registrants, and festival-goers of all ages also enjoyed the art of movement through hoop dancing classes.
  • Over 30 volunteers helped make the festival a success, and built pride in their community.
  • Our random survey of festival-goers found that a majority felt positively about Keeseville, and that the festival drew attendees from across the region and Vermont.
