Our Past Charity of Choice (2018 & 2019) was…..

 The Green Angels

This amazing hometown organization is a a 501c3 Nonprofit Charitable Organization and was founded by Bill Doyle & Marya Vande-Doyle in 2008. They are a small organization operated completely by a couple of hundred volunteers and one paid part-time associate.  The Green Angels aims to enrich the lives of local children with quality gently used toys, books and clothes at no cost, while encouraging citizens to experience the benefits of giving back to their community by recycling household items. Additionally they provide infant items to young mothers such as diapers, pack ‘n plays, strollers and crib mattresses. They collect our gently used items throughout the year and use this as inventory to serve families in need. All items are free and delivered at no charge. They do their best to find suitable items for every request.

This is a NO Smoking/Vaping event and No Pets permitted

A love note below from Trish…The Purple Painted Lady to….. YOU!

Hi ….thanks for stopping by this website. I am sad that we are skipping the 2020 Festival season, but with events of this size, the local state and government have advised on not having it this year.  Heck, they have not even determined if school will return in September, so you can guess Festivals are not a priority …and rightly so.  However, I am so very grateful to the many amazing artists who come together to create this magical event for you.  On the day of the festival, I will stand in my driveway and look around and soak it all in in astonishment.  A lot of thought and time goes into planning it. Most events of this size- have committees of 40 people, but this is totally homegrown and between Steve and me and a bunch of amazing local folk who volunteer for the fun of it- we pull this off!  Steve and I always try to learn from the previous year and improve the experience you will have.  With that said- we hope you have an amazing time and we are always open to hearing from you.  Stay healthy and let’s kick COVID19’s butt out of here!  XO~ Trish


Thank you for coming last year, in 2018!  We raised over $40K that went directly back to local charities and organizations!
