The Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Art and Craft Festival will be terrific this year, with award-winning new artists and artisans, a special area with Wayne County Arts Alliance artists, and a lineup of activities that will please everyone, young and old. We’ll have an ice sculptor at the entrance to greet you with wildlife ice sculptures, and educational displays and activities with the theme “Audubon At Home.”
Outstanding art work and the wares of skilled artisans will be displayed on the main floor, and on the stage we will have three one-hour wildlife shows with live birds, reptiles, and animals each day. There will be an area with crafts and games for children, and the cafeteria will have food and beverages available. Celebrated storyteller John Porcino will provide entertainment throughout the day.
It all takes place Saturday, July 19, and Sunday, July 20, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Wallenpaupack Elementary and Middle School at 158 Atlantic Avenue, Hawley PA. Tickets are $5.00 (children under 12 free) and will be available at the door. The money we raise at this event funds camp scholarships and college scholarships. More information can be found on our newly redesigned festival website at www.audubonfestival.com.
Volunteer Opportunity: We are looking for a few volunteers to help out at the admissions table on Saturday from 12-2pm and from 2-5pm. Please contact Jim Sanders if you are interested.
