The 12th annual Humboldt Arts Festival promises something for everyone, and it’s a promise that is sure to be delivered upon.
The annual event is the effort of the Humboldt Area Arts Community, a non-profit group that works to promote and foster the arts in Humboldt County.
The many corporate and individual sponsors and supporters of the group help ensure the funds to be able to provide a festival with free of charge events and activities for people of all ages.
The festival itself will take place Saturday, June 17, at the Humboldt County Historical Museum, 905 1st Ave. N., Dakota City. The hours will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We are excited this year with something new, an added bonus to the Arts Festival itself,” said festival chairperson Jodi Giddings.
There will be an evening concert, “Music Under the Stars,” from 6-9 p.m., provided by the Kris Karr Band. Acoustic singer-songwriter Danny Grause, comedy-magician Michael Oz and Red Kicks Band with Humboldt native Monica (Williams) Albertson will be performing during the daytime hours.
