    Celtic Music! The Ancient, a Celtic music ensemble from Nova Scotia, will perform at 1:00pm on Sunday, August 19, in the Centre Street Church sanctuary. 

    The Ancient features Gordon Phillips with vocals, drones, and percussion, and Valerie Goldin on the harp, English concertina, and whistle.   They will be joined by Machias musicians, Duane Ingalls and Clifton Moser, on strings. The Ancient plays both Celtic and folk music, performing and recording primarily in Eastern Maine and Canada. Check out their music at the link above.

     

    Climate 911 puppeteers are bringing climate and health literacy to the festival this year with a puppet show for the whole family.  The national network of health professionals is dedicated to educating policymakers and the public about the health effects of climate change and the need for urgent action.

    Come see how Flash and Diego make climate science fun.  These furry stars of the show, Dogs to the Rescue, make people laugh as they train their humans to take walks, eat their veggies, and breathe clean air. “The kids are still talking about it!” Chris Melquist Keizer Community Library, Keizer, OR.

     

    Then come see the Magic Show! Our magician is back again this year.  Look for him under the yellow and white tent on the Church Commons at 2:00 on Saturday afternoon. We hear there even might be magic tricks for sale after the show!

     

    Three days of vendors! We are pleased to announce that there will be vendors for three full days again this year on the Church Commons Lot (the grassy area next to the church).  Friday from 9-5, Saturday from 9-5, and Sunday from 9-3.  Our vendors are excited about this three day opportunity, and there are many new vendors submitting applications.
