"For 2013, we have some great changes for the festival," said Megan Andrews, festival director.
• Enhancing cultural elements of ZFest by focusing on regional artisans, culinary flavor and music
• Partnering with BREC to have a free of charge children’s village designed to entertain and instruct even the youngest with various inflatables, stand up paddle lessons, kayak lessons and much more
• Onsite parking will now be available to all festival participants
The event will be held free of charge to those in attendance.
“We are planning to have as many as 100 regionally and locally renowned artists selling their works and will be offering musical entertainment such as the Todd O’Neil Band and the Chee Weez on Friday, Mar. 22 and Randy Houser on Saturday, Mar. 23.
On Sunday we will have Not4Sale Band. Throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday we will have local entertainment on stage.
"We look forward to a fun family oriented event with a new festival designed to have families affordably and comfortably stay all weekend to enjoy a true community atmosphere,” Andrews said.
The carnival will open on Thursday, Mar. 21, but the event will launch with opening ceremonies on Friday, Mar. 22. The Festival will be open from 5-9 p.m. on Thursday, 5-11:30 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m.-11:30 p.m. on Saturday and 12-7 p.m. on Sunday, March 15 - 18.
