Celebrate the stars and stripes at SeptemberFest 2014: "Star-Spangled Spectacular," a theme inspired by new exhibition, 'Winslow Homer and the American Pictorial Press.' This year SeptemberFest is made possible in part by Chevron.


Now in its 45th year, this annual, juried arts festival draws artists from far and wide to display their works on the first weekend after Labor Day.
