Lemont Fest 2015 Report
The information below is from the first Lemont Fest, new information for 2016 will be posted soon. Many of the features from 2015 will be repeated, if you'd like to get involved, please email Sean at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
The Lemont Village Association is hosting SOMETHING NEW - an art, music, and food festival, "Lemont Fest" in the Granary and on the Lemont Village Green , 11th and 12th.
The purpose is to offer local residents an alternative to the large, crowded events in the area on that weekend. Vendors will be local family-owned businesses and soloprenuers. The goal is to support local independent makers and enhance community engagement. There will be 25+ vendors with booths set up inside the grain elevator. This will be a juried art event and we also are looking for volunteers to assist during the event. Local food and beverage vendors, Food for Thought - Mitch & Sharyn Angle and Brazilian Munchies - Flavia Barger, will be located near the Coal Sheds. Otto's Pub and Brewery will be there, too, with beer tastings. Musicians will play during the event on the Village Green stage and other artistic activities will also take place on the Green. Speeder rides will be Saturday and Sunday, from 10 am to 4 pm.
Proceeds will benefit the Lemont Village Association's Granary Project. Lemont Village Association Board member (and local artist), Amanda Kunkel, is directing this event.
