Positive Summerfest summary report shared with council

It was a successful year for the Summerfest Arts Faire in spite of the deep recession and the fact that a heavy rainstorm hit Logan on the final day. Summerfest Director Mary Ann Sidwell’s appearance before the Cache County Council this week was her first to present a summary report of this year’s Summerfest Arts Faire.Sidwell told the council on Tuesday more than 120 artists participated this year. Sidwell, in her first year as the event’s executive director, emphasized the importance of the county’s allocation of RAPZ tax money to the Arts Faire.”We don’t charge admission,” she said, “we rely on booth fees and registration fees from artists plus RAPZ tax funds, for which we are very grateful.”Sidwell said many artists reported it was the best year they had enjoyed at the Faire, even with the rain on the final day. Sidwell said some artists sold more art this year than they ever had before.She said planning for the 2010 event is underway and she will begin accepting applications from artists in the fall.
