Hovland Arts Festival July 7 & 8th


Hovland Arts Festiaval

This Summer the Hovland Art Festival will be celebrating it's 13th years. July 7 & 8th. 

Every year since conception each festival’s wonderful live music lineup has been provided for by local musicians.  With the summer festival being held indoors and out the first festival’s music was performed outdoors in the open subject to any and all wild elements.  After that a big tent was rented to shelter these performances.  This past summer the festival folks were thrilled to use for the first time the new pavilion that was recently built out back of the town hall.

We pretty much have our artists all lined up now. We could still get some more last minute ones in ~ but, here they are as of today.
JP Fraser & Dwayne Wabegijig ~ First Nations art
Terry Lewis ~ glass art, chimes & jewelry
Lou Pignolet ~ turned wood bowls
Joan Farnam ~ pottery
