ACTIVITIES

A festival favorite will return in 2022: the Swamp Fox Grand Prix pedal car race.

The Cardboard Regatta has been canceled due to anticipated cold temperatures. A tradition since 2018, the Regatta pits students against one another in student-designed and built boats made of nothing but cardboard. It’s a sight to behold, and we hope to have the Regatta back in the future.

ADMISSION

Admission to Arts International is free and open to the public, along with all the festival’s entertainment. Food trucks selling refreshments will be available for purchase, along with craft items from local artisans.

Younger attendees can enjoy the Children’s Area, which has included story-telling, puppeteering, face-painting, balloon animals and more.
