Author Thursdays: Maple Valley Creative Arts Festival

Maple Valley Days this weekend!!!!


Taken from the website:


The Maple Valley Creative Arts Council proudly presents the Fifteenth Annual Arts Festival hosted at the Lake Wilderness Lodge (22500 SE 248th, MV). This popular event coincides with the annual community celebration, Maple Valley Days and is the must see highlight of the weekend. Arts Festival will include a live performance area (poetry, music, dance, etc.), indoor gallery space for display of visual arts, artists’ demonstrations and hands on art activities for children.

NEW this year will be a special Saturday Night Open Mic. We are adding this very popular event to celebrate our 15th anniversary of supporting and cultivating local artists .  Along with the amazing talent that Open Mic attracts, we will have our first Poetry Slam.  Also check out the Photo Page for last year’s Arts Festival award winning artwork.
