Evergreen's annual Summerfest brings joy to attendees

Posted

Combine beautiful weather with artisan booths, crafts for kids, live music, libations and food trucks, and you have Evergreen’s 42nd annual Summerfest.

The artwork was as diverse as the artists themselves — from photography and paintings to jewelry and clothing to candles and functional art — during the two-day festival July 23-24.

Band Kamp was rocking the afternoon of July 24 as a backdrop to the fun as attendees browsed through the booths, enjoyed lunch and listened to the music.

For jewelry maker Beth Greene of New Mexico, Summerfest was the perfect combination of activities, not just artists’ booths, which made her decided to sell her work here this year. Greene works in both sterling silver and gold, pleased with the steady attendance at the event.

Adam Weiss of Nebraska, who works in copper, has been showing his work at Summerfest for more than 10 years, noting that the clientele was great. He offered copper garden art and had small crystals for sale, which attracted a large group of children.

Vicki Saxe with Two Sheds Pottery in Lakewood agreed that Summerfest was a great place for artisans because sponsor Center for the Arts Evergreen is good to the vendors.

“The crowd is good, and there’s great music and food,” she said. “We were here last year, and it’s one of the best arts festivals.”

For Sherry Predaina and her husband Len of Evergreen, the festival had something for everyone.

“It has a variety of interesting things,” she said, noting she had already purchased some metal flowers to put in her yard and some household decorations. Additional items had caught her eye, and she was planning to circle back to check them out one more time.
