Head to Hudson’s Carpenter Nature Center for the seventh annual Carpenter Art Festival. Art director and local artist Steve King says, “The intent of this festival is to draw attention to the Wisconsin Carpenter Nature Center, to inspire people to enjoy this beautiful Midwestern landscape, to learn about the importance of this particular habitat and support superb local and regional artists.”
Nature-oriented artists and vendors will be at the festival, plus music performances by Thea Ennen, live birds and reptiles for viewing and handling, beverages from Cracked Barrel Winery and Rush River Brewery, food and more.
“This will be the seventh year of the Carpenter Art Festival, and it’s already shaping up to being the best one yet,” King says. “In the pre-pandemic 2019 Carpenter Art Festival, we had 50 different high-quality artists and vendors participate, and I expect the same this year. That year, we had approximately 1,800 people attend the art festival.”
