Entries must be turned in by June 15 to allow for framing and hanging. Huntington Sheet Metal is sponsoring the opening bid on each framed canvas. All proceeds from the donated canvas art are added to the LAC’s Arts in Education programming budget. Additional entertainment at the event includes youth arts and crafts activities in the creative studios at the HAEC. The local food fair features an array of area food vendors, each providing taste-size portions of their cuisines. Tables and chairs will be available for attendees, but everyone is encouraged to bring their own chairs to guarantee having a seat during the festivities. People attending JeFFFest will purchase food tickets at one of two ticket booths. Cash and credit cards will be accepted. There is no admission fee to attend JeFFFest. All proceeds from JeFFFest go toward the LAC’s Arts in Education programming.
