As protectors of the French Broad River we understand the importance of environmental conservation. We and all of our partnering organizations want to share our knowledge and passion with the stewards of tomorrow. This event will feature educational activities from some of the best local environmental educators. Topics can range from recycling to birds of prey.
We also want to showcase the earth as a source of artistic inspiration. Therefore the festival will host many eco-friendly arts and crafts. It will also be the first display of RiverLink’s Voices of the River: Art and Poetry contest entries for 2017. All entries reflect the theme “How are you connected to your watershed” The judge’s winners will be announced at the festival, so come show support for you favorite young artist.
And of course what would a festival be without fun and entertainment? You can expect games, face painting, interactive music, stilt walkers, and more!
