LOCAL ART

Much like music, art has an important place in the community. Combining both art and music together, MuscaPalooza bridges two creative styles as one. Guests will be able to enjoy the incredible aesthetic and inspiring beauty displayed around the venue.

Artists this year include Ben LaFayette, Chris Anderson, Laurie Burk, Sami Pratt,  Lyndsay Thomas, Silverwynd Mixed Media, Chastity Gypsysoul and Jim Elias (Sunrise Galleries) to name a few. There will even be live art demonstrations taking place as well as a wide array of unique artwork items for sale.

 

GOOD EATS

What’s better than live music, river views and local art? How about some good food!  The festival will include delectable eats from Rick's Ribs (Saturday) and QuickE's Gourmet Tacos and Sno Cups. Feast for yourself; and order the "MuscaPalooza Combo"... Music, Art & Food!
