Sunday, August 17: 10th Annual Hearth Fest Music & Arts Festival and Food Drive
This music and arts festival to be held on August 17th 1-7 pm, benefits the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. Every dollar donated helps provide 5 meals. Local visual and musical artists donate talent or art. There's a silent art auction, craft sale, acoustic music, poetry contests and kids activities throughout the day. Monetary or non-perishable food donations are admission. The Cedar Valley Acoustic Guitar Association musicians and others play. Tapping the talents of local artists and musicians brings with it a bigger sense of community.
This event is on Sunday to showcase it as a fun family event. This is our 10th year and we want to celebrate in a big way by getting even more donations than ever! Since all of the proceeds benefit Northeast Iowa families, we want families to participate and 'show they care'.
