Festival Runway Fashion Show
August 18 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Festival Runway Fashion Show is a not-to-be missed event! Now in its 11th year, this event features Festival exhibitors who step out of their artistic medium and into the world of fashion. The result will blow your mind with over-the-top creative couture with the twist of all being made out of recycled, reused and reclaimed materials. It is a competition, similar to TV’s Project Runway. Festival artists start months in advance in hopes of taking home the top prize and bragging rights. Patrons will be amazed by this fully produced runway show, including celebrity host and a panel of fashion experts. This event never disappoints, even after ten years, our Festival artists’ creativity and ingenuity keeps it fresh with many surprises!
