Welcome to the new year and beginning plans for this year’s Mount Vernon Music and Arts Festival,

August 12 – 15, 2021.


     As we begin to plan for the coming festivities, we temper our excitement with gentle apprehension. As continual optimists, we will be planning activities for our community-family, young and old, with full guidance and support based on state and local health department approval. Who knows what the future holds for us? Regardless, this committee will be ready to release our energy with activities and experiences that our community can anticipate, experience, absorb, appreciate, and relish.

     Refer to this website often as new and fun opportunities and activities will be presented for all community members to participate and enjoy.


     Please feel free to reach out to us with questions and ideas.

So….Here we go!

* No sitting in the Park National Pavilion or Kiwanis Pavilion.

*People need to take their trash with them because there are not a lot of trash cans
around the lake.

*Activity host(s) will wear a designated shirt

*Covid-19 signage will accompany all artists performing and serve as a reminder
about safety.

Live music, interactive arts, great food, arts and crafts vendors. Yup. It's awesome. Plus, we made this website.
