Corn Hill Neighbors Association will celebrate its 50th annual Corn Hill Arts Festival on July 14-15.
The neighbors association unveiled a new festival brand, including a new graphic identity that highlights the Lunsford Circle gazebo and a new message to visitors — “Come for the art. Stay for it all” — that articulates the range of experiences the event offers.
“For those who recall, 1969 was an unmistakably lively and fascinating year,” said Bill Kelly, 2018 chairperson. “We plan to honor and celebrate many of the year’s historic milestones, in addition to the inception of our festival. Our goal with the new branding is to celebrate both where we have come from and what we have become — a weekend of art and fun in the heart of our city. And while art remains the core of the festival, we now offer so much more. There truly is something for everyone.”
This year’s special anniversary will include celebratory-themed events that tie into 1969, the year the festival originated. Other offerings include art, music, food, beer, wine and kids activities.
“ESL is pleased to be the presenting sponsor of the 50th anniversary of the Corn Hill Arts Festival,” said Faheem Masood, president and CEO. “We are looking forward to all the celebratory activities that will mark this milestone before and during the festival. The festival provides a wonderful way for the community to honor and preserve such a rich tradition and history.”
