Summer Arts Festival CANCELLED ๐Ÿ—“

Please Note: Summer Arts Festival 2017 has beenย CANCELLED

We want to THANK YOU for your interest in the RIAMS Summer Arts Festival 2017. After careful consideration, we have made the very difficult decision to CANCEL this year’s event. Due to logistics beyond our control, we don’t feel confident that we could produce the caliber of event that artists, vendors, and attendees alike have come to expect from RIAMS by June 10.
Please stay tuned for updates on next year’s event!
And in the meantime, please plan to join us Saturday, September 30 from 10am-4pm for our annual RIAMS Fall Fest!
