The Hershey Artfest & Flower Show will expand offerings to festival patrons this year with more juried artists, a larger music schedule, and expanded children's area.
Working with local art and photography clubs, PA State Guild of Craftsmen members and other artists, the committee expects to see over 150 artists in Hershey for the day. Previous shows have showcased local and regional photographers, painters, metal works, mixed media, glass and fiber artists. Along with the artists will be a variety of food and drinks to enjoy as you browse.
In addition to those changes, a new flower show will be introduced. Flower and plant vendors from area nurseries, florists, landscapers and consultants are being recruited to supply arrangements of fresh and dried flowers, wreaths and spring garden ideas. "Being Mother's Day Weekend, we offer a great opportunity to do something with mom, grandma, or your mother-in-law. Enjoy great art, music, and allow her to pick a flower arrangement to remember the day" stated Nicole Soliday, Executive Director of the HDTHS.
