Bear Festival Wrapup

Release Date: Apr 28 2014

Whoooee!!!  What a great weekend we had. The weather was perfect. We picked, grinned and sang, dawn to dusk. The Mainstage performers were fabulous. The Marketplace artists lined the square with handcrafted treasures, some even demonstrated how they were made. The new addition to the square was Luthiers Row featuring the most beautiful handmade musical instruments. After a short break to rest up, let's do it again next year!!!

19th Annual Bear on the Square Mountain Festival: April 18-19, 2015 with the Live and Silent Country Auction on Friday, April 17.
