Garlic and Arts Festival Supports Community Differently This Year with New, Virtual Offerings for the Whole Family!
We cannot be together this weekend but we remain committed to supporting our exhibitors, promoting skills for resilience, and uniting community in a variety of ways as this is an especially important year to uphold the values and actions that keep our communities strong.
On Saturday at 9:00 am, we’ll announce the release of our all new YouTube channel and expanded website featuring over 120 videos- original and from the event archives- that will inspire our festival community. In addition, please link up and share along with the 6,000 followers of the festival facebook page where we will release select curated links every 15 minutes to as many of the exhibitors, performers, and presenters who make the festival such a scent-sational and beloved event that we could squeeze in. Our virtual team has scoured the internet for videos of you. Some were taken from other YouTube channels or other sites and have been added to our channel. If you did not respond to our spring and summer requests for online content (videos, virtual tours, presentations), feel free to do so before Friday but we cannot guarantee that we can individually promote it on social media in this 11th hour, although we will add it to our channel when we can for it to be viewed well into the future. We plan to grow the channel for years to come.
The North Quabbin Garlic and Arts Festival extends deep appreciation to the many thousands that have attended over the years, plus hundreds of volunteers and exhibitors who have been with us so long. Resilience, cooperation, and forward thinking have kept the festival strong for over twenty years, and it remains so, as a source of inspiration that extends well beyond the wonderful scent of garlic. We proceed into a new and different foreseeable future, one in which all will benefit as we work towards the greater good with creativity and clear vision that includes good food, beautiful art, clean energy, and health and wellness for all.
See you online when we launch on Saturday!
