Plans are moving ahead for the third annual WoodStarke festival. Visitors to this September’s event in Wythogan Park in Knox can expect to see several musical acts and various types of artwork, including woodcarving, photography, and painting. Organizer Jacob Lippner says there are even plans to work with library representatives to incorporate the written word into WoodStarke 3.
One change this year is that artists will be allowed to sell their work during the festival. However, Lippner says this will be limited to handmade items from local artists and students.
Meanwhile, organizers are still looking for volunteers, both to help with planning and with the event itself. Those interested may attend the WoodStarke Planning Council meetings held every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. near the Wythogan Park basketball courts. Lippner says the young volunteers on the planning team have been doing amazing work, but he’s also looking for volunteers with more experience, to help with the networking aspect of the event.
Members of the public are also welcome to submit any ideas or suggestions to festival organizers, using the WoodStarke Facebook page.
WoodStarke 3 will take place Saturday, September 10.
