MONTPELIER — 2014 was the inaugural year of the Montpelier ArtsFest. In year one, the organizing committee was pleasantly overwhelmed by the positive response to the new event and is now putting out a call to artists for this year’s festival.

The Montpelier ArtsFest is scheduled for Saturday, October 3, 4 to 8 p.m. The festival is designed to exhibit the vast and diverse artistic talent in Central Vermont and a chance for seasoned and emerging artists to showcase their talents. Festival goers will take a tour of unique venues throughout downtown Montpelier each curated by a different community arts group and individual artists, crafters and performers.
