Thanks to all the 2013 participants – the food vendors who served up countless of plates of yummy food to the thousands of spectators watching hundreds of local performers performing for next to nothing made possible by a generous group of volunteers – emcees – Compost-Recycling-Trash crew members – Merchandise helpers – Parade safety teams – and the Tech Crew whose accomplishments are many (including the putting up & taking down of hundreds of tables & chairs each day), to the Craft Vendors who keep our economy localized & our lives filled with beautiful things, the non-profit Tablers who make our community better, Gorges Green Expo participants offering us tangible solutions for a sustainable future, the IthacaTalkers offering humorous & heartfelt insights with a common thread of encouraging us all to respect one another, this place, and our planet. And, our Sponsors, without you we couldn’t do this – Thank you for believing in the importance of artistic expression, community celebration, and putting your money where your values are. We are so very appreciative of all of you – it truly takes a village (to celebrate a village), so thanks for doing your part at the Ithaca Festival 2013, Where The Heart Is.
Remember on February 2nd the Applications for participation in the 2014 Festival become available online! See you then!
You wanted to know, And now it’s time! The Festival theme is… Rhythm & Rhyme!
