The 9th Annual Grafton Fine Arts and Music Festival is almost here! It will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 11am- 8pm. This year, it will be a one-day event, showcasing various art forms and complimented by musical performances throughout. As in previous years, a panel of judges will award three prizes for each art category, now nine in total. A new category, Digital Art, has been added this year due to the generosity of the Grafton Suburban Credit Union. Four prizes for nature themed arts will again be awarded by The Grafton Land Trust. There are also two additional youth prizes being offered by The Grafton Historical Society.

There is no admission fee for participating artists and children under 14.  The small admission fee for all others is $5/each not to exceed $20 /family.
