After serving approximately three years as executive director of the Summerfest Art Faire, Debbie Ditton has resigned to take over the Music Theatre West Company. She will be succeeded by well-known researcher and folklorist Elaine Thatcher.
Summerfest comes up between June 18-20 in 2015 but Ditton has a reminder: the deadline for entering the Featured Artist Competition is Friday, December 5.
“We just want something that represents Cache Valley or Summerfest specifically, something that they love about this valley,” Ditton explains. “We use that for our poster art. We use it for the cover of our printed program, it goes on our Facebook page, on our website. It sort of becomes the face of Summerfest for this next year.”
Ditton says the featured artist competition winner gets a free booth to show his or her work at the Summerfest Art Fair.
